Behind the scenes but not the times…Naval Hospital Bremerton coding staff members are a crucial part of upgrading the Department of Defense integrated electronic health record MHS GENESIS with Revenue Cycle Expansion, a specifically designed program to link up business needs with clinical practice by honing efficiency in such administrative and management areas as meeting patient demands, managing patient records, and detailing patient accounting. Coders at NHB, Madigan Army Medical Center, Naval Health Clinic Oak Harbor and the Air Force's 62nd Medical Squadron, as well as billing teams, although not directly involved in providing patient care, are intricately engaged in every patient encounter. Every time a NHB provider, nurse, corpsman sees a patient, there’s a specific code assigned to each diagnosis and procedure. That coded data is used to be reimbursed by insurance companies and/or federal government coverage such as Medicare or Medicaid. Increased billing accuracy is a crucial part of NHB’s business operations working with and supporting clinical operations (Official Navy photo by Douglas H Stutz, NHB/NMRTC Bremerton public affairs officer).
