According to a recent HIM Benchmark Report, HIM department managers equally ranked Coder Productivity, Quality, and Managing Financial Metrics as their biggest challenges, while that same report noted that close to 60% of HIM professionals outsource a portion of their coding needs. Even without direct outsourcing, we notice an increase in the opportunity to do coding and billing work remotely.

Now that ICD-10 is in full swing, we are seeing a lot of activity with providers, payers, consultants and regulators who need to understand how Acute Inpatient and Long Term Care Hospital claims "behave" when the claim is coded in ICD-10. This includes both prospective and retrospective review of claims scenarios to understand MS-DRG grouping. This article offers a basic primer on MS-DRG grouping logic, and research techniques for using related MediRegs Coding Suite tools.
