Using the right medical codes or Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes defines accuracy in medical transcription or any healthcare documentation. It is the exactness of CPT coding that makes medical records consistent, compliant, and easy to find when needed in critical situations. Accuracy in CPT coding and CPT compliance is a service benchmark for all O2I's medical billing and coding & medical transcription services.
At O2I, medical billing, coding and transcription is not a mere conversion of doctor's dictations into electronic formats, rather it's more about accurately applying right code to the records of each and every patient. Our work is the culmination of accurate information gathered from lab results, medical records, doctor's transcription and other such medical notes.
We cross-check these CPT codes against the code books provided by AMA to ensure that all codes are entered accurately. We purchase American Medical Association's CPT coding guidelines every year to offer most updated codes to our clients, and are currently following latest version of the CPT codes, i.e. CPT 2012.
With so many CPT codes describing a health condition, unqualified transcriptionists tend to enter the closest or approximate CPT code, which may lead to improper information about the patient. At O2I, we have certified CPT transcriptionists and quality & error handling audit teams to ensure that approximate codes are clearly avoided, and only the accurate CPT codes go into the records. In case of any doubt, our healthcare transcriptionists take client's opinion, and thereafter enter the correct codes.
Outsource2india is ICD-10 and CPT coding compliant. The major difference between these being that ICD-10 is meant to diagnose medical claims, while CPT coding identifies the rendered services.
With the more accurate ICD-10 codes in force, O2I was one of the first and leading healthcare BPO providers complying with ICD-10's vast code base. Our inner transition training programs and change agents have helped us to move on easily, and accurately use CPT codes, from over 68,000 ICD 10 available codes.
