Wayne, PA and Alpharetta, GA Dec 20, 2011 — Precyse, a leader in health information management (HIM) technology and services, was awarded a five-year contract by Adena Health Systems in Chillicothe, Ohio for its Healthcare Information Management Strategic Sourcing Services.
“I have all the confidence in the world in Precyse,” said George A. Semko, Revenue Cycle System Director for Adena Health System. “Having used Precyse’s services at a former healthcare system, I have seen first-hand the elimination of backlogs, a decrease in Discharged Not Final Billed (DNFB) days as well as improvements in quality, workflow, efficiency, and cash- flow. Their in-depth knowledge and experience in meeting healthcare regulatory and compliance requirements coupled with their background in health information systems are the reasons we selected Precyse as the ideal HIM partner.”
“The Adena management team was very impressed with the HIM knowledge and experience of the Precyse team and we look forward to this long-term partnership with Precyse,” said Keith Coleman, Adena’s Chief Financial Officer. “As a result of the cost savings and efficiencies that we expect to gain in the HIM department, we look forward to adding personnel and resources to other areas of Adena’s health system.”
“Providers are facing numerous challenges in meeting regulatory and compliance healthcare requirements and partners like Precyse with innovative solutions and expert staff and best practice processes help them to meet those challenges head on,” said Chris Powell, President of Precyse. “Our HIM strategic sourcing services implement changes without compromise. We help strengthen health data integrity, drive EHR adoption, improve productivity and processes and prepare for a successful ICD-10 transition. We pride ourselves in taking care of the health information that is taking care of patient lives.”
As part of the five-year agreement, Precyse will provide transcription services which include use of precyseNetTM, Precyse’s transcription and patient record document management system. Precyse will also provide HIM administration, staffing support and education, processing of all patient records, reports and reconciliation, and regulatory and compliance review and adherence.
Precyse currently provides HIM support to hundreds of hospitals and health systems nationwide and is the only company able to assume full responsibility for the entire HIM function for a hospital or health system on a short or long-term basis.
