WAYNE, Pa., Feb. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Precyse Solutions, a leader in health information management (HIM) services and technologies, will showcase PrecyseCode™, the most advanced health information management platform available today, at the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference & Exhibition February 20 – 24, 2011, in Orlando, Fla. (Booth #1637). The PrecyseCode software platform features a natural language processing-enabled (NLP) coding engine driven by state-of-the-art technology that processes and understands human voice, converting it to text and transforming it to information. The NLP coding software is provided by M*Modal, a pioneer of advanced speech understanding technologies, natural language processing (NLP), and on-demand conversational documentation solutions for healthcare professionals. The PrecyseCode kiosk will be part of the M*Modal booth at the HIMSS conference.
"PrecyseCode allows providers to break through the barriers of antiquated processes that up until now have hampered efficiency and productivity," said President and General Manager, Ken Lacy, Precyse Advanced Technologies. "PrecyseCode represents a big step in our customers' efforts toward redesigning revenue cycle workflow, enhancing coding efficiency, and enabling fast and efficient responsiveness to physician queries. This single solution provides a snapshot of all necessary management, resource, and reporting tools for mission-critical health information management processes on one platform, easily monitored and managed through an easy-to-follow dashboard."
Precyse Solutions and M*Modal recently partnered with Geisinger Health System to put Precyse Code's ICD-10-ready automated clinical documentation and NLP coding software to work to bridge electronic health record (EHR), dictation, transcription, coding and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) processes by capturing physician dictation, editing it, coding it and directing it into an EHR software platform. Based in Danville, Pa., Geisinger Health System is widely recognized for its implementation of innovative care models. Using the Precyse software platform, Geisinger physicians will be able to dictate directly into the EHR with minimal impact to their current workflow patterns. Clinical information will be electronically tagged to be easily searched, mined and analyzed by healthcare team members responsible for driving hospital care and outcomes. The partners aim to see this collaborative technology replicated across the country.
"At Geisinger, we are confident that PrecyseCode will help us to optimize the coding process, improve workflow and accelerate ICD-10 transition," noted Joan Topper, Vice President, IT Optimization, Geisinger Health System.
