WAYNE, Pa., April 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Precyse expands its footprint as healthcare providers increasingly embrace the vision of a single, integrated platform to support all aspects of health information management on an enterprise-wide basis. The Precyse platform leverages knowledge gained in delivering stellar health information management services over the past 15 years to a vast array of healthcare organizations. The platform is used today to automate clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and medical coding workflows via a single shared infrastructure. This shared infrastructure, coupled with state-of-the-art natural language processing (NLP) and enhanced cross-role communication, enables providers to optimize reimbursement, reduce audit risks, and improve quality while lowering the total cost of ownership.
The number of client go lives for the Precyse platform has doubled in the last 6 months as providers understand what is required to prepare for risk sharing and quality-based arrangements. The Precyse technology has continued to evolve to support these requirements - providers and the new healthcare landscape require more than just standalone CAC or CDI specific to inpatient or outpatient workflows, and the Precyse platform has gained in breadth and depth. Customers who were early implementers of technology are reinforcing their commitment to the single integrated approach to help break down silos and open communication among physicians, CDI specialists, coders, auditors and others.
One early adopter, Holyoke Medical Center, is delighted with the latest release from Precyse. Per Laura Piquette, Director of Health Information Management/Privacy Officer "we are experiencing vastly improved throughput and productivity with this latest release and the enhanced integration with the Meditech EMR is invaluable to our coders. In addition, the common infrastructure optimizes our coding and documentation integrity through enhanced coder to CDIS communication. The Precyse implementation team and support teams assigned to Holyoke Medical Center are wonderful to work with."
The Precyse combined offering of CDI technology and clinical documentation improvement services also continues to see tremendous market momentum, separate from the ICD-10 transition, as clients recognize that improving clinical documentation is foundational to many of their initiatives to improve the quality and reduce the cost of healthcare.
Debra Stenner, Precyse Chief Technology and Strategy Officer, states, "With expanded use of our technology, our customers are not only reaping the benefits of more appropriate reimbursement and better public quality reporting, but many are now looking at ways to rethink their documentation and coding staff's roles and antiquated workflows to provide even greater efficiency and return on investment."
Precyse will be demonstrating the latest version of its platform technology at the HIMSS 2015 Conference in Chicago, IL, April 13-15, and giving a sneak preview of what is to come in the rest of 2015. Stop by the Precyse booth (#7316) for a full presentation of the Precyse portfolio of services, technology and education for the Health Information Management environment.
