The medical coding and billing industry is prone to time-consuming manual processes, a high risk of human error, and a lack of scalability and efficiency.
In traditional medical billing and coding, healthcare providers input data. With more than 70,000 codes today, it becomes difficult for coders to process charts with the speed that the healthcare system demands.
This causes errors and makes the entire process inefficient. These errors further lead to the denial of claims and the inability to manage the ever-increasing workload.
However, Artificial intelligence (AI) technology holds the potential to transform medical billing.
The technology behind AI solutions for medical billing involves the integration of Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). AI-powered medical billing integrates with the existing billing process, reducing the need for manual input and making the billing process faster and more accurate.
Medical billing and coding are the two areas embracing AI intervention. In the foreseeable future, AI is expected to become a partner to medical coders and billers in the:
As AI continues to evolve and improve, healthcare providers need to keep up with the latest developments and rightfully implement this technology to improve medical billing for their patients. With sustainable capacity building to integrate AI in health care, physicians can now focus more on innovations and complex treatments while AI will be acting as a second brain for them.
Medicodio is an AI-powered coding tool that reduces medical coding costs and improves efficiency by up to 45%. A great fit for RCM companies and hospital billing departments, CODIO suggests medical codes (CPT, ICD10, HCPCS, modifiers) by reading patient demographic info from EHR systems and Physician Notes/Chart. After the medical coder makes a selection from the list of suggested codes, CODIO sends your codes to the billing system.
