FairCode AssociatesFairCode was founded in 2001 by a team of physicians and clinicians to improve coding documentation and compliance in hospitals. Using board certified physicians to review every single chart, FairCode validates DRG assignment to match patient acuity and severity of illness to the coding to ensure that their clients receive full compensation for the care they render.

As a company developed by clinicians, FairCode provides specially trained physicians to review the documentation post CDI and coding efforts but before billing to create clinically cleaner claims. These specifically trained physicians use FairCode’s audit support technology to collaborate with hospital coders to more accurately code diagnoses and procedures. Physician-to-physician dialogue improves and clarifies the medical record documentation so that appropriate codes are selected and sequenced for final DRG assignment. Quality metrics, including ROM and POA diagnoses, are addressed because of the physician’s perspective on each case.

In 2017, FairCode client hospitals with at least 150 beds experienced between $322,000 and $9.5 million in additional billed revenue. FairCode clients rely on these resources each year to support their mission.
