CHANTILLY, Va., Aug. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Medicomp Systems announced the first-time distribution of ICD-10-CM mappings and functionality with its new version of the powerful MEDCIN Engine®.
The MEDCIN Engine is a proven knowledge engine that adapts to the unique clinical presentation of each patient and provides enterprises with all the codes needed for compliance and reimbursement. The MEDCIN Engine currently includes over 400,000 maps to standard reference terminologies, needed for interoperability, billing and reporting.
This new version of the MEDCIN Engine makes it easier to get bi-directional mappings, codes, descriptions, and new UI especially designed to make ICD-10-CM more usable in EMR systems. It includes over 40,000 ICD-10 mappings, with the beta update scheduled for February 2012, and the commercial release in August 2012.
"We're very excited about releasing our first ICD-10 update to our customers and interested in early feedback about our strategy. We believe this new version of the MEDCIN Engine will go a long way to making the move from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM easier to absorb by EMR vendors, physicians and their staff," said Peter Goltra of Medicomp Systems.
This updated version of the powerful MEDCIN Engine will enable clinically-contextual, problem-oriented views of incoming data using ICD-10-CM and standard reference terminologies such as SNOMED, RxNorm and LOINC from multiple external sources, permitting what Medicomp coined "usable interoperability."
