Aledade, a public benefit corporation, exists to empower the most transformational part of our health care landscape - independent primary care. We were founded in 2014, and since then, we've become the largest network of independent primary care in the country - helping practices, health centers and clinics deliver better care to their patients and thrive in value-based care.
We are currently recruiting a Clinical Documentation Integrity Specialist/Educator (CDIS/E) to support clinical documentation integrity and coding within practices participating in value-based contracts. This position is critical to our practices’ ability to provide better care to Medicare beneficiaries and the CDIS/E is expected to be an exemplar of regulatory compliance. The CDIS/E will lead field and provider education and training related to complete and accurate diagnostic documentation and coding, in accordance with ICD-10 CM coding guidelines, internal protocols and CMS and payer guidelines. The CDIS/E will develop and deliver tailored education at the national, market, practice, and individual provider-level; complete end-to-end workflow assessment and optimization; and perform chart reviews to identify specific opportunities for improved accuracy. The CDIS/E must be detail-oriented, service-minded, possess strong verbal and written communication skills, and be fluent in (or willing and able to master) Google Suite tools.
There will be opportunity to travel periodically to practices as well as engage in remote work. Initial, onsite training is provided.
We are looking for individuals who genuinely believe that Aledade’s model of physician-led ACOs can improve quality and lower cost. This position will work remotely within the USA and includes periodic travel to Aledade’s Headquarters in Bethesda, MD and assigned markets.
