"We are proud to be an AHIMA Diamond Partner and support the AHIMA Foundation as a Platinum Partner."
Solutions and ICD-10 Education Tools
A highlight at AHIMA 2013 is precyseCode™ and precyseCDI™, the only singly, integrated platform enabling both inpatient and outpatient computer assisted coding (CAC) and clinical documentation improvement (CDI). The platform incorporates state-of-art Natural Language Processing (NLP) for embedded intelligence and supports multiple HIM roles across an organization.

Precyse and HealthStream have partnered to offer a one-stop solution for all ICD-10 education needs, enterprise-wide, in healthcare organizations. With Precyse's innovative ICD-10 education programs and HealthStream's market leading platform for talent management (i.e. the platform and technology that provides Precyse University), healthcare providers have made the ICD-10 solution from Precyse and HealthStream the healthcare industry's top choice—with over one million users. Available exclusively through HealthStream, our education is recognized in a 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." 1 Precyse University is utilized by 15 of the 19 healthcare facilities listed in U.S. News and World Report's Best Hospitals Honor Roll.
HIM Innovation Community
On October 27, Precyse will assemble the HIM Innovation Community. This group is led by Linda Kloss, MA, RHIA, FAHIMA, president of Kloss Strategic Advisors and former CEO of AHIMA. Comprised of Precyse thought leaders and HIM professionals from 30 top healthcare institutions in North America, the assembly will convene to consider how health information management is evolving and to share ideas about how to facilitate positive change. The Community explores trends and their impact on information management and considers future scenarios for HIM practice based on assumptions regarding the pace and sequence of change and the impact of technology on these changes. In addition, Merida Johns, PhD, RHIA, Founder of the Monarch Institute for Women's Leadership, will lead attendees in a study of personal leadership, which will include authenticity, vision, awareness, strategy and action. Precyse will collect, compile and release the findings and highlights of this Community meeting after AHIMA 2013.
