Accurate code and DRG assignment translates into secure revenue. It impacts the appropriate capture of the patient’s clinical condition, severity of illness, risk of mortality, risk adjustment, and decreases risk for payer denials. Additionally, DRG Validation allows an organization to identify opportunities for process improvement, and then take that information and translate it into ongoing education.
