  • Establishing and maintaining a credible coding compliance program is a unique challenge for compliance leaders. Independent audit companies provide objectivity, but most engagements aren’t fully optimized leaving unresolved issues and unmet objectives
  • Attendees to this session hear how DeKalb Medical Center designed and implemented a hybrid, partnership program for coding compliance to reduce risk, increase integrity and improve documentation across three campuses and a 30-practice physician group
  • Speakers detail how technology and real-time analytics were used to achieve KPI results, garner physician buy-in, and build comprehensive compliance reporting dashboards to communicate with senior leadership and achieve compliance goals
