Medical coding auditors have been dealing with manually reporting on their audit outcomes for years. Why isn’t there an easy to use application that will organize my audit results and generate all of the summaries and reports for me instead of doing everything by hand and taking hours when a computer could do it in minutes? This question was presented to a group of healthcare software developers recently and a partnership was born. Karen Pickering, RHIT, CCS lead a team of auditors and coders with over 30 years of experience to develop the requirements and worked with some very talented programmers to create ReviewMate by Pickerson.
