Since 1981 LexiCode has provided quality HIM coding and consulting services to healthcare providers and payers nationwide. Our consultants work to enhance operations in every type and size of the healthcare provider environment, including hospitals, physician groups, ancillary services, emergency departments and outpatient surgical facilities. Today LexiCode, remains an industry leader in coding compliance solutions.
LexiCode clients benefit from our unique understanding of coding that goes back to the development of the DRG payment methodology. With the adoption of the MS-DRG methodology and implementation of the RAC program, comprehensive and accurate coding is critical for your facility. Coding is a vital part of evaluating patient care costs, monitoring patient severity and designing clinical pathways. You simply can’t afford to have anything less than the most timely and accurate coding available.
To ensure accuracy, revenue accountability and to endure those inevitable bottlenecks that come with holidays, vacations and other conflicts, more health care providers turn to LexiCode for coding expertise. We maintain a staff of thoroughly trained and credentialed coding professionals ready to assist your coding department through a temporary crunch, consult in problem areas, conduct coding audits or assume complete management of your coding operation.
Our professionals are credentialed coding consultants (RHIA, RHIT, CCS, CCS–P, CPC) with experience coding in all patient care settings. Each of our consultants has completed our comprehensive Coder Development Program, which provides a thorough study of all applicable guidelines, regulations, processes and clinical data. LexiCode also provides our consultants with ongoing training opportunities to ensure our staff is abreast of the ever–changing industry. Our Corporate Compliance Plan requires that each consultant participate in ongoing skills assessments and is evaluated regularly during quality reviews conducted by our managers.

- Outpatient Surgery

What is LexiCode’s Coder Development Program?
One key to our consultants’ success is our unique Coder Development Program, which is specially designed to sharpen our coders’ skills and make each one a better, more versatile consultant.
The program is tailored to meet each consultant’s specific training needs. It takes the coding skills our consultants already possess and expands them through a combination of book-based learning, practical coding of records, instructor review, and feedback.
The program is extensive and, depending on each individual consultant’s need, encompasses many weeks at the beginning of employment with LexiCode. After the program, LexiCode provides ongoing training opportunities to help our consultants expand their skills, increase their knowledge and keep them abreast of the changes in the industry.
Whether you are an employee or a client, you will find LexiCode’s Coder Development a huge benefit to you!
