The Philippines is poised to become a major player in the healthcare outsourcing sector. The workforce of the healthcare outsourcing sector increased by almost 50% from 2010 to 2011. The revenues it has contributed have also been steadily increasing from $102 million in 2010 to $277 million in 2011. With the Philippines' highly-proficient English-speaking workforce, superior telecommunications infrastructure, and economical business solutions, the country is rapidly becoming an attractive destination for companies looking to outsource healthcare information management.
One important process in healthcare information management is clinical abstraction. It is the translation of written clinical statements of patient care into coded data by a medical encoder or abstractor. The medical encoder analyzes the statements and classifies them using a standardized system. This makes it easier to match the needs of patients to available healthcare resources.
In 2011, MicroSourcing started providing its services to a US-based health information solutions company specializing in medical encoding or clinical abstraction. The client uses our virtual captive model and is currently outsourcing more than 100 advanced level encoders.
Here at MicroSourcing, we place a premium on hiring encoders who are well-versed in medical terminology and disease processes. We also make sure they have excellent critical thinking skills and attention to detail. Our medical encoders can deliver high quality work, on par with what you would get abroad, but at a much lower price point.
We have experience in taking on medical encoding processes:
