Precyse Harnesses the Power of One at HIMSS 2013
HIM leader showcases integrated platform for CAC and CDI, along with unique ICD-10 education program and comprehensive service lines
Wayne, PA and Alpharetta, GA Feb 28, 2013 — Precyse, a leader in health information management (HIM) technologies and services, will show healthcare organizations how to harness the power of one at the HIMSS 2013 Annual Conference & Exhibition March 3-7 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans (Booth #4369). Precyse is once again a HIMSS Gold Sponsor, and will also sponsor the HIMSS ICD-10 Symposium and the HIMSS ICD-10 Knowledge Center.
“From an integrated platform for inpatient and outpatient CAC and CDI to a one-of-a-kind ICD-10 education program to a comprehensive array of leading HIM service offerings, Precyse allows healthcare organizations to harness the power of one, serving as a single source for all of their Health Information Management needs,” said Chris Powell, President, Precyse. “Visitors to our booth at HIMSS will be able to see this firsthand.”
PrecyseCode™ and precyseCDI™
A highlight at Precyse’s HIMSS 2013 booth will be its showcase of precyseCode and precyseCDI, the only single, integrated platform enabling both inpatient and outpatient computer assisted coding and clinical documentation improvement (CDI). The Cloud-based platform incorporates state-of-art Natural Language Processing (NLP) for embedded intelligence and supports multiple HIM roles across an organization. The precyseCode platform also contains embedded encoder integration.
Visitors to Precyse’s booth will also have the opportunity to speak with a representative from Geisinger Health System, which was the first healthcare organization in the nation to use precyseCode with NLP. Geisinger recognized early on that the transition to ICD-10 was going to be an enterprise-wide endeavor that would require a computer assisted coding platform with tools to improve clinical documentation improvement. That’s why, as the organization began preparing for the ICD-10 transition, it chose precyseCode as an all-in-one solution for transcription, clinical documentation improvement, computer assisted coding and ICD-10 education.
“At Geisinger our vision was to introduce natural language processing technology across the clinical documentation continuum. precyseCode is a key component to accomplishing that goal as it will help us optimize coding processes, improve workflows and accelerate ICD-10 transition,” said Joan Topper, Vice President, IT Optimization, Geisinger Health System, who will be in Precyse’s HIMSS booth to discuss how her organization has benefitted from precyseCode.
Comprehensive ICD-10 Education Program Through Precyse and HealthStream
Visitors to the Precyse booth will also have the opportunity to get more information about Precyse University, the most innovative and complete on-site, online and mobile healthcare education solution that is designed to prepare coders, physicians, nurses, case managers, administrative staff and all other impacted populations for the transition to ICD-10. This unique and comprehensive ICD-10 Education Solution is delivered through the HealthStream Learning System. Representatives from Precyse and HealthStream will provide solution demonstrations of Precyse University and its innovative applications, arcade and simulators during HIMSS.
Healthcare organizations nationwide are discovering the benefits of Precyse University, and the number of organizations that use Precyse University has grown from 1,000 to nearly 3,000 organizations in the past year to educate more than 750,000 learners. Precyse was also recognized in the recent KLAS report, “ICD-10 Consulting: Roadmap to a Successful Transition,” as the “only firm in this report to receive 100% positive comments from their clients about their ICD-10 services.”
As a sponsor of the HIMSS ICD-10 Knowledge Center, Precyse will give a presentation titled “Unlocking Enterprise-wide ICD-10 Success,” which will provide more guidance on the importance of taking an enterprise-wide approach to ICD-10 transition. This will be held Tuesday, March 5, 2013, at 11:15 a.m. in Booth #4351.
New HIM Innovation Community White Paper
As the sponsor of the HIM Innovation Community, Precyse will provide copies of the newest white paper released by the thought-leadership group. Titled “Health Information Management in 2016: Guiding Principles and a Governance Framework for a Digital Age,”the white paper is authored by Linda L. Kloss, RHIA, Kloss Strategic Advisors, Ltd., former CEO of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and one of Modern Healthcare’s top 25 Women in Healthcare, in collaboration with Precyse thought leaders and HIM professionals from 30 top healthcare institutions in North America. Precyse convened the HIM Innovation Community in 2011 to consider how health information management is changing and to share learning about how to facilitate positive change.
