HIM Innovation for over 25 Years
“We do it the right way.” MARSI’s slogan for a decade, and mission statement since inception over 25 years ago.
From day one, we’ve looked for undercoding/underbilling AND overcoding/overbilling… a true compliance program. Each recommendation for more accurate coding has always been complete with specific education and the rationale for making the recommendation. MARSI specializes in medical coding support, physician education, medical coding auditing, medical coding compliance, medical coding optimization, & healthcare revenue cycle management.
Writing queries to physicians for over 25 years, before anyone knew about queries.
And Compliance. We haven’t called it “compliance” for over 25 years; we called it “being defensible” until “compliance” became the buzz term.
MARSI realized over 25 years ago that physician documentation was central to problems with coding, utilization, and quality. We’ve been successfully educating physicians ever since.
Over 15 years ago, we began a focus on Observation vs. Inpatient admission status. There seemed to be great confusion and a high number of medically unnecessary inpatient admissions. It looked like trouble ahead for our clients and we aimed at fixing it. The RAC focus was no surprise.
For over 15 years ago, we developed and refined a simple, highly successful clinical documentation improvement process that we call Continuous Clinical Documentation Improvement® -CCDI that actually helps train physicians and changes their documentation practices, while capturing lost revenue. Within the last 10 years, Clinical Documentation Improvement has become a nationwide concept.
Finding lost revenue, defensibly, while training your staff and physicians.
We pride ourselves with being the quality leaders in the industry. Our experts are nationally known. Our results are accurate and reproducible.
Beyond all of that, we treat each client personally; becoming an integral member of their organization.
