Facility Coding

RTI’s facility coding package ensures consistency and compliance in the hospital emergency room, along with accurate revenue generation.

RTI’s facility coding comprises of three core services:

Facility (Acuity Level) Coding assigns the technical component code to describe ED services, based on patient acuity, nursing and physician documentation, ED time and ancillary utilization. The facility code will be billed on patients seen by private physicians as well as ED physicians.

ICDM-9-CM Diagnosis Codes are used to their highest level of specificity to ensure appropriate payment of services, with RTI assigning the ICD-9-CM diagnoses needed for UB-92 billing.

ICDM-9-CM Procedural Codes are also used to their highest level of specificity to ensure appropriate payment of services, dependent upon payor type.

In addition to improved accuracy and revenue generation, Facility Coding clients will receive various reports analyzing facility activity and productivity in detail.
