BIRMINGHAM, Ala., July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Halifax Regional Medical Center (Roanoke Rapids, NC) has chosen Vincari's Lightspeed Valet, the ICD-10 virtual assistant for surgeons that streamlines documentation process and increases surgical CMI by accurately capturing the severity of illness.
"Halifax Regional Medical Center understands the needs of surgeons and the critical balance of time spent between patients and documentation. We've chosen Vincari to provide our surgeons an exceptional product to make documentation and coding of ICD-10 easy and effortless. Vincari gives surgeons the time to be surgeons."
-- William Mahone, President of Halifax Regional, Novant Health
Vincari's cloud-based rules engine and real-time querying virtual assistant learns physician behavior and anticipates what they need to complete operative reports, reducing the need for queries downstream. This creates a "single pass" from the physician to coding/billing without the need to ask the physician for clarification.
"We chose Vincari due to the possibility to streamline the work process of documenting for the surgeons. We had eight surgeons to review the program and all saw the possibilities for improvement for all of our surgery specialties. The Vincari team was very professional and knowledgeable. All references for the program came back positive. We look forward to a very productive program to implement."
-- Sherry Jensen, VP of Finance and Clinic Operations, Halifax Regional
Operative Notes created in Vincari are 100% Joint Commission Compliant and ICD-10 Specific. With an 86% voluntary physician adoption rate across customers and 100% client retention, physicians and hospitals appreciate the convenience Vincari brings to the documentation process.
