LAUREL, Md., Dec. 16 HealthCare Resolution Services, Inc. (HCRS), a leading provider of program integrity support, health information technology services and professional medical and technical staffing services, announced today that it has been awarded a contract with the U.S. Air Force's Commodities Council to support the Air Education and Training Command (AETC) with medical records coding and analysis, auditing, and provider training. The multiple-award contract has a performance period of one base year and two option years and is valued at $7.9 million if all options are exercised.

HCRS has worked with AETC, the Air Force's primary provider of air, space and cyberspace education and training, since 2002 to support data quality efforts for outpatient, inpatient, ambulatory procedures and emergency room services. Under this contract, HCRS will code and validate approximately 360,000 medical records annually at 13 AETC Medical Treatment Facilities (MTF), ensuring their accuracy and the viability of their electronic health records (EHR).

HCRS will continue to analyze and audit the coding data to identify trends, and will now also focus on conducting documentation training for physicians and clinical staff. Ultimately, the data analysis and provider training will help AETC staff better utilize EHR and ultimately provide improved care to patients.

"AETC's complex needs require an in-depth familiarity with the organization as well as experience in both front- and back-end processes at every stage of documentation," said Susan Sirmai Feinberg, director of business development for HCRS. "This contract represents AETC's commitment to highly effective and efficient medical data gathering and will enable their staff to more easily use EHR, resulting in improved access to care and healthier populations."
