Our Inpatient Medical Records Reviews include an evaluation of your ICD‑10‑CM/PCS Diagnosis and Procedural code assignments, Complications and Comorbidities (CCs & MCCs), the Level of Clinical Documentation, Physician Querying, and the Sequencing of Codes in order to assign the appropriate DRG and/or MS-DRG. PRC’s consulting staff has extensive experience in auditing Inpatient admissions for compliance as well as identifying opportunities to enhance DRG assignments through improving Clinical Documentation. Therefore, PRC will not only validate the coding scheme assigned, but we will review admissions, in detail, to uncover opportunities to enhance Clinical Documentation along with DRG assignments and the Hospital’s Case Mix Index. During these projects, PRC will also review UB‑04s in order to validate the accuracy of billing claims. A comprehensive, written report will be submitted and PRC will conduct Educational sessions to present findings, and discuss recommendations.
