Our Mission

Ensuring Accurate Coding for Emergency Physicians

About ERcoder

Unlike generalized coding providers, ERcoder specializes in coding services specifically for emergency physicians. We also offer coding and documentation training for ED coders and physicians and auditing services to identify problems, improve coding accuracy, and optimize reimbursement.

Because of our specialization, we offer exceptional experience and knowledge of relevant best practices and regulatory developments in coding for emergency medicine.

Our clients are assured accurate, timely and auditable coding in compliance with fast-changing regulations and payer trends.

Most important, when we manage your coding, your ED staff can stay focused on patient care.

Our coding team

Our nationwide team of certified clinical coding professionals is among the best in the business. All our coders are U.S.-based and serve hospitals, emergency physicians and billing companies across the Country.

Our coders are known for their deep, specialty-specific experience in emergency medicine, and they meet the highest standards of training and competency in coding. They also continually track regulatory and payer developments to facilitate compliant and trouble-free claims and prompt reimbursements for the emergency departments we serve.
