Serco to deliver medical coding audit services for US AFMS

Professional, technology and management services provider Serco has been awarded a contract for the supply of professional medical coding compliance services to all US Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) military treatment facilities.

Professional, technology and management services provider Serco has been awarded a contract for the supply of professional medical coding compliance services to all US Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) military treatment facilities.

Valued at $11.7m, the contract will continue for a period of four and a half years.

Under the terms of the agreement, the company will be responsible for delivering medical coding audits that will ensure systematic, unbiased, independent examination of medical documentation.

The audits will also help validate all medical codes that enter the Military Health System to meet official coding policies, regulations, requirements and standards.

The integrity of the data, which ensures value to the patient, supports the AFMS mission by playing a major part in workload, reimbursement, provider currency, decision support, and population health and disability services.

“We have assembled a strong team who is focused on supporting the needs of the end-user.”

Serco chairman and chief executive officer Dave Dacquino said: “We believed that our acquisition and programme management services were a good match for this programme, and we are proud to have earned this new contract to support the Air Force Medical Service.
