ATLANTA, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM), provider of the Looking Glass® platform of integrated solutions, technology-enabled services and analytics supporting revenue cycle optimization for healthcare enterprises in the new value-based world, today announced the general release of version 188.8.131.52 upgrade for its Looking Glass® Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) and Coding solution.
This upgrade includes features developed to enable healthcare providers to improve staff productivity, enable more effective resource management and enhance overall financial performance. The new version enables numerous enhancements to the workflow and home page display. These include empowering supervisors to better manage workload and staffing by enabling them to see both assigned and all pending future work. The upgrade provides for displaying additional customizable columns in the queue and homepages including working DRG, final DRG, and last review date. The new version provides enhanced support of CDI notes. Full text search is available for rule criteria to suggest various queries to improve coding efficiency. In addition, any queries previously closed or cancelled by mistake can now be reinstated without re-creating the query. This saves time and ensures that query metrics will be accurately reflected in summary reports. Metrics are also enhanced by the flexibility to better isolate starting and ending points used to accurately calculate the CDI impact. And this version includes enhancements to reports used to provide CDI impact to executive management.
Version 184.108.40.206 also provides a new searching function by enterprise patient identifier for multi-facility providers that deploy this higher-level identifier. This feature provides support for growing provider networks with initiatives to generate an enterprise-wide unique MRN.
