Across our leadership team and throughout our organization, we are dedicated to delivering quality services that contribute to and improve care delivery for Veterans.”
Sierra7 is recognized in the industry for its commitment to quality and expertise in medical coding. Under the BPA Sierra7 will provide coding, auditing, and training support to VA. Sierra7’s services include inpatient, outpatient, professional encounter, and surgical coding. Sierra7 will ensure proper coding compliance and timeliness to secure and manage patient health information prior to billing. In addition, Sierra7 will be conducting external audits, and training for VA staff members.
