Partnership expands training in the healthcare coding and billing space to improve claims process
Relias, a trusted partner to more than 11,000 healthcare organizations and 4.5 million caregivers, today announced it is partnering with Revenue Cycle Coding Strategies LLC (RCCS) to expand its training and educational offerings that help healthcare providers more efficiently navigate the complex and fast-changing world of billing codes and compliance.
RCCS, which has corporate headquarters in both Atlanta and Austin, has been an industry leader in medical specialty coding, billing, and compliance education and consulting services for more than 20 years. The company offers training programs for every phase of the revenue cycle.
“By partnering with RCCS, we have taken our comprehensive revenue cycle and coding library and made it even better through subspecialty-specific content,” said Mike Mutka, former Chief Strategy & Business Development Officer for Relias. “It allows us to build on our commitment to provide the ongoing training healthcare providers need to ensure complete and accurate reimbursement.”
The new partnership expands on Relias’s Revenue Cycle and Coding curriculum, which is among the most comprehensive in the market with more than 700 lessons covering the complete revenue cycle — from the first interaction with a patient until claims are fully paid. The RCCS products provide education for specialized coders, clinical, and other related professionals who focus on specific areas where a much deeper knowledge of coding for that condition/specialty is required. These highly specialized coding courses focus on key specialties, taking learners into a deep dive in areas such as invasive cardiology, interventional radiology, and radiation oncology.
“Being able to expand the availability of our expert-designed courses with a valued partner like Relias provides a wonderful educational benefit to professionals who are looking to obtain the very best content in increasing their knowledge,” said RCCS President Melody W. Mulaik.
“This provides a huge upside for subspecialties in CPT® and ICD-10 updates and needs,” said Mutka. “With so many specialized codes in these areas, we’re helping clients improve accuracy and reimbursements within distinct areas and to their particular needs.”
Executives from RCCS discussed the importance of accuracy and consistency in medical coding, as well as the impact proper training has on staff confidence and productivity at Relias’ annual Impact Nation conference in September. To view the presentation click here.
