clinical coding

CEC Healthcare Coding was formed in 2014 in response to the growing demand for effective clinical coding resources. Often, coding teams are faced with staff shortages, through planned and unplanned absence. Often, staff leave the service, and there can be difficulties in locating replacement team members.

Above all, clinical coding management seek certainty on delivery, month-in, month-out. Certainty extends to completing coding for a high percentage of patient discharges, ensuring output is maintained throughout the reporting period, and that the depth and quality of coding reaches the highest standard.

CEC works collaboratively with clinical coding teams. We guarantee the volume and quality of work undertaken. Importantly, pricing is based upon productivity and customers pay for actual coding work delivered. Contracts provide flexibility in monthly volumes and coding is provided as a managed service. CEC provides an important buffer, able to support customers in taking on increased workloads at short notice.

We serve a growing number of NHS Providers, spanning Acute, Community and Mental Health, coding all specialties. In all cases we provide the highest standards in customer service.

Central to service quality, CEC has developed key knowledge and working methods in the management of remote clinical coding. Know-how extends to lists management, communications with customers and in meeting monthly volume targets. Whether you wish to a) overcome a backlog, b) have a remedy to maintaining staffing levels, c) reduce reliance on contract agency staff, or d) completely transform your coding services, we can ensure that your exact requirements will be met.
