ALLENTOWN, Pa., April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AVIANCE Suite, a health information technology company for hospitals and health systems, proudly announces the signing of a reseller agreement with Nuance, Inc. for AVIANCE's flagship application, Central Learning. Central Learning® is a web-based coding assessment and education application, and part of the AVIANCE Suite of health information and revenue cycle technology solutions for healthcare organizations. Central Learning will power automated coding assessments as part of Nuance's overall audit and education programs.
"Coding accuracy in ICD-10 remains a difficult metric to evaluate and quantify for most organizations, even after 18 months under the new coding nomenclature," said AVIANCE
Founder and CEO Manny Peña. "By proactively assessing coder knowledge and providing code rationale, facilities quickly identify recurring mistakes and prevent coding errors from multiplying over time." Central Learning automates the assessment of coder performance for ICD-10, CPT, and Evaluation and Management coding nomenclatures. Central Learning is designed to help coders do it right the first time to minimize denials and ensure clean claim submission.
Michael Loyd, general manager at Nuance, Inc. said, "New reimbursement models and regulations have made coding accuracy and completeness more critical than ever. It is our belief that combining Central Learning with our audit services for assessments and education will improve coder accuracy, and increase hospital revenue. This partnership gives Nuance the ability to quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively assess coder proficiency and identify the most important opportunities for coder improvement and is a nice complement to the Clintegrity Coding Solutions Portfolio."
