McKesson Intelligent Coding™ helps optimize revenue and reduce compliance risk for:

  • Emergency department coding and charge capture, via the ED Facility module
  • Observation coding and charge capture, via the Observation module
  • Employed and affiliated emergency care physicians, via the Physician module

McKesson Intelligent Coding takes the guesswork out of coding by:

  • Determining appropriate coding using a rules engine and extensive algorithms
  • Consistently applying APC coding rules and procedures
  • Automatically determining the appropriate level of service (E&M level)
  • Calculating correct codes for drugs administered using advanced coding algorithms
  • Providing extensive reporting to improve quality and performance

The McKesson Intelligent Coding solution can help your organization:

  • Keep current with regulatory changes related to new coding requirements instituted by CMS and the CPT rules as published by the American Medical Association
  • Ensure compliance by calculating CPT codes for infusion and injection coding following current CPT hierarchy
  • Optimize revenue by ensuring compliant charge capture, which leads to more predictable reimbursement
  • Simplify complex coding hierarchies by applying all current CPT algorithms and bundling rules for surgical procedures
  • Analyze performance with quality indicators that identify incomplete documentation
  • Eliminate duplicative data entry by interfacing patient data from your ADT system
  • Speed reimbursement by interfacing codes to your billing system and providing charge status reconciliation for each visit
