Precyse HIM Technology Platform Continues to Expand its Footprint
The industry’s only integrated technology platform for inpatient and outpatient coding and CDI – precyseCode™ and precyseCDI™ offers additional functionality with easier to use interface
San Diego, CA Sep 30, 2014 — The use of precyseCode™ and precyseCDI™ by provider organizations continuous to grow. Precyse’s single, consolidated platform offers both inpatient and outpatient computer-assisted coding (CAC), and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) workflow supported by state-of-the-art Natural Language Processing (NLP). The technology and Precyse’s unique ability to offer associated services helps minimize denials, reduce audit risks, and improve coding compliance.
Nationally, Providers are starting dual coding programs to ensure their coders have hands-on coding practice before the proposed ICD-10 implementation in October 2015. Dual coding allows providers to analyze for documentation gaps, identify educational opportunities and the potential impact on contract and reimbursement.. Client facilities using precyseCode and precyseCDI are taking advantage of the technology’s dual coding capabilities, which are complemented by Precyse’s dual coding services. “The technologies are helping our clients lower their coding error rates and reduce the number of queries back to the physician for clarification or correction,” comments Chris Powell, CEO of Precyse. “Since AHIMA October 2013, we’ve experienced 26 percent growth in our CAC/CDI technology client base.”
Adds Debra Stenner, Chief Technology and Strategy Officer, “Hospitals using Precyse’s technology have experienced significantly higher productivity rates. One client reported a 50 percent increase in productivity with the use of precyseCode for same day surgeries (SDS) and expects the number to grow.”
