ATLANTA, Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- iMedX, a leading health information and medical documentation solutions company based in Atlanta, Georgia, has been awarded a three-year Vendor Partner contract to provide medical coding services for FirstChoice Cooperative (FCC), a national healthcare group purchasing organization, based in Tyler, Texas.

The contract, which builds upon an existing medical transcription outsourcing agreement with iMedX, offers FCC members a wide range of medical coding solutions, from overflow coding assistance to full outsourcing of the coding function.

In addition to medical services outlined, the contract offers FCC members a chance to benefit from participation in iMedX's unique Client Alignment Program (CAP). Aimed at lowering operating costs and improving efficiency, the program enables hospitals to enjoy the benefits of outsourcing while protecting jobs in their local community. Under the CAP agreement, iMedX will hire member hospital staff, train them, and provide them with all resources necessary to maintain high-quality clinical documentation and customer support that meets the standards established by the institution. As an added bonus, the CAP allows the employee to continue their ongoing support for their former Health System while remaining a valued member of the iMedX team. 

"We are delighted to extend our contract with iMedX by adding their coding solutions to our existing portfolio," said Jeff Nellis, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at FCC. "We are confident that our members will benefit highly from this partnership and are excited by the growing potential of this ongoing strategic relationship."

As top-rated KLAS services provider, iMedX's Humanology approach to healthcare information management fuses industry-leading technology with the most qualified people to formulate precision in the clinical documentation process.

"The unparalleled customer experience provided by iMedX ensures our clients maintain a significant edge in clinical documentation through the ICD-10 transition and ever-changing healthcare industry," said Jim Banghart, SVP of Sales and Marketing at iMedX. "We are thrilled to extend our partnership with FirstChoice and its members for years to come."
