Inpatient Coding

Welcome to IQRCM, your trusted partner for IP DRG coding solutions. We specialize in providing accurate and efficient Inpatient Diagnosis Related Group (IP DRG) coding services to healthcare facilities. With our expertise and commitment to excellence, we ensure that your hospital’s coding processes are optimized, leading to appropriate reimbursement and streamlined operations.

IP DRG coding is a critical component of hospital coding, specifically related to inpatient services. Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) are a classification system that groups patients with similar clinical conditions and resource utilization patterns. IP DRG coding involves assigning the appropriate DRG codes to accurately represent the diagnoses and procedures associated with each inpatient stay.

At IQRCM, our team of AHIMA certified coders possesses extensive knowledge and experience in IP DRG coding. We stay up-to-date with the latest coding guidelines and regulations, including those set by the Canters for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and American Health Association (AHA). By leveraging our expertise, we ensure that your hospital’s coding is accurate, compliant, and reflective of the complexity of each patient’s condition and treatment.
