1. Explain the importance of a coder in an organization that utilizes computer-assisted coding (CAC) in terms of accuracy of code assignment
2. Discuss how coders will assist in corrective action regarding the CAC process
A coder is vital in organizations using coder-assisted coding (CAC) because it automatically generates medical codes from clinical documentation. With this technology, healthcare institutions can streamline their revenue-cycle processes. Moreover, it can allow these organizations to comply with the increasingly complex payer and quality reporting demands. Coders will aid in corrective action by reviewing and revising the coding process not only for outpatient services but also utilizing cloud computing in healthcare.
