MS-DRG Relationship Assessment
You are the inpatient coding manager at AUH. Your director has asked you to develop an ongoing review and monitoring schedule for the next year based on the results from the outside review.
Include internal and external reviews, coding in-services, physician workshops, and external seminars/educational sessions that will be performed and or provided for your staff. The schedule should be specific (include volumes and/or percentages of charts to be reviewed). Keep in mind that on average it takes 18 minutes to review one inpatient chart. Budget provides for $15,000 for external reviews. The average cost for reviewing one inpatient record by an external review team is $55.00 (fully loaded).
In addition to preparing the schedule, outline how you will maintain coding quality statistics and report them back to the HIM Director and Compliance Committee at your facility.
