5 a.m. hits like a semi truck when my alarm goes off. I begrudgingly get out of bed and begin my morning routine. Being "healthier" this year certainly feels a lot more like being "tired." Once I get my gym clothes on, I feel my way down the dark staircase to my kitchen and pull out my pre-workout supplement.
Once this 3 step process is complete, I instantly feel a boost. My body responds and I know its time to get to work. I take this supplement combined with protein in the mornings to get the fitness results I want. Medical coding like my new years resolution can offer an extremely positive results on your practices financial outlook, or it can be bleak and discouraging. Lets take a look at how to boost your medical coding with supplements.
Temporary medical coding is a great way to help keep things moving when a coder, office manager, biller, etc. is out on leave or vacation. July and December see an extreme uptick in employee vacation days, leaving administrators with a pile of coding work that needs to be done in order for claims to be submitted. Inevitably the large stack gets coded with a lower quality and higher denials as the recently returned personnel doing the coding is trying to play "catch up" in order to get back to his or her normal routine. Playing catch up is never a good thing when it comes to revenue. Temporary coding is a supplemental medical coding practice that can help providers maintain a level of excellence when coders are not able to perform due to leave.
