Our Physician Advisor Integrated Staffing Solutions
Clinical Documentation Integrity
Our experienced clinical documentation specialists (CDS), supported by our physician advisors, are at the forefront of our CDI staffing program. Having physician advisors as part of our staff is the true differentiator to drive the physician buy-in needed to elevate documentation. Over the past decade, Dr. Timothy Brundage has blazed the trail of physician-led CDI education, and remains the source for documentation education to thousands of CDI specialists nationwide. Following this lead, BWS hand picks the top CDI talent to match the very specific needs of our clients.
Our coding trained physician advisors are nationally recognized educators of the hierarchical condition category (HCC), a risk adjustment model that will continue to gain prevalence. Through our sophisticated vetting process, we enable you to stay ahead of this adjustment model by supplementing your health system with experienced HCC clinical documentation specialists.

Medical Social Work
It is well known that behavioral health patients represent a rapidly growing portion of ED visits while utilizing a higher amount of services than the average population. We arm your ED with a proven Psychiatric ED social worker who has the skill set to handle these admissions more efficiently. We also specialize in providing experienced complex discharge planners to support the case management department.
Facility or Professional Coding
Our domestic coders have dedicated acute care or physician practice experience and maintain 95% coding accuracy. The increasing strategy of offshore coding programs is posing issues to quality. We have extensive facility and pro-fee coding knowledge and understand the need to break down silos between professional and facility coding to ensure high-quality coding.
