Precyse University Earns High Marks in KLAS ICD-10 Consulting Report

Precyse University, delivered exclusively through HealthStream, received very high satisfaction scores from clients for eLearning averaging 4.8 out of 5.0
Wayne, PA and Alpharetta, GA May 27, 2014 — Precyse, an industry leader in Health Information Management (HIM) Performance Management services and technologies, and HealthStream (NASDAQ: HSTM), a leader in workforce development for healthcare organizations, are pleased to announce that Precyse University ICD-10 education solution received very high overall and eLearning scores in a recent ICD-10 Consulting report authored by KLAS, titled “ICD-10 Consulting Services: Who can help in the eleventh hour?”. Precyse was rated as a component vendor in this report for its Precyse University solution. An overall performance rating of 93 out of 100 was reported, along with a client satisfaction average of 4.8 out of 5.0 for the Precyse University solution for ICD-10 education. The report states that “Of the firms included in this research, Precyse is by far the most frequently used for eLearning.”
Available exclusively through HealthStream, Precyse University is designed to prepare coders, physicians, nurses, case managers, administrative staff, and all others impacted by the transition to ICD-10. For this research, KLAS interviewed healthcare providers that have recently or are currently using services from a third-party firm to help them prepare for the switch from ICD-9 to ICD-10. At this time, Precyse University is used by approximately 1.6 million learners in healthcare organizations — where a sample were interviewed by KLAS for their report. The overall score (which was 93 out of 100 for Precyse University) is further broken down into several subsections by KLAS. Of these subsections, Precyse University scored 100% in three categories: “Would purchase again,” “keeps promises,” and “avoids charging for every little thing.”
The comments and outcomes of this report further reinforce that the healthcare industry has spent considerable time and resources ensuring preparedness for the original October 1, 2014 deadline that has now been changed to a date that will be, according to the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, “not before October 2015.”
One client stated in the report “Precyse’s eLearning is very comprehensive and well thought out. We have yet to go to Precyse with something that was lacking where a solution didn’t already exist, wasn’t in planning, or wasn’t something they were willing to do for us. Precyse gets started right away and works on anything that hasn’t been developed. They have just been outstanding on all fronts in terms of what they promised and fixing any gaps. They are very quick to deliver.”
“I am thrilled that our clients have given Precyse University such an excellent review in the ICD-10 Consulting report. Across the board, Precyse University earned high scores that show we work very hard to ensure clients are receiving the products, service, and support they need” said Chris Powell, CEO of Precyse. “With the ICD-10 implementation date now delayed, providers can utilize this time to ensure all impacted populations are educated and prepared for the switch.”
