Unmatched information that increases billing, coding, compliance awareness, supports payment integrity, and maximizes reimbursement.

Today's reimbursement challenges and ever-changing regulatory requirements make it difficult for providers to "get it right" the first time. To manage increased coding and billing requirements, and identify missed revenue opportunities providers must be able to easily uncover the right information to resolve these points. Comprised of extensive algorithms and data engines, KnowledgeSource facilitates more accurate coding and billing results that increase clean claim rates, reduce denials and promote accuracy. The management and protection of payment integrity is simplified with our single source solution, the unique perspective of our team of coding and billing experts, and the breadth of our content. In addition, peer hospital pricing data provides valuable information to inform strategic pricing decisions.
