BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vincari, a leader in Surgical Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD), announced today that it has joined the Epic App Orchard to offer surgeons guidance during the documentation experience. Harnessing the power of FHIR and SMART technologies to integrate with the EMR makes it easier for Vincari to provide surgeons with In-App specialty documentation workflows designed to capture the most specific surgical information possible, leverage personal documentation habits to eliminate redundancy, and deliver all required documentation back into the EMR immediately following surgery to support quality care and appropriate reimbursement.
"We're excited about this tighter integration to enable our health system customers an even more seamless physician experience when using Vincari CAPD workflows within existing hospital EMRs." Alston Noah, Vincari CEO
Vincari is designed by surgeons to streamline the postoperative documentation process. With an 86% voluntary adoption rate, the Surgical CAPD solution helps surgeons capture ICD-10-specific and Joint Commission complaint details at the point of care. The integration with Epic brings the solution inside the surgeon's workflow by providing a seamless link to document care from within the patient record and makes it easier for IT to deploy by reducing interface work. Surgeons can easily access the solution remotely from any location. Intelligent workflow tailored to surgeons' specific needs automatically identifies information needed to keep up with and satisfy regulatory guidelines, helping to eliminate retrospective queries and avoid delays. In less than 90 seconds, a highly detailed and compliant report is created and made immediately available in the EMR for the entire care team. To save time and improve efficiency, a copy is distributed to referring physician practices and an automated charge capture report is sent to the surgeon's practice for coding and billing purposes. By capturing the required level of specificity and accuracy in documentation and streamlining coding processes from the start, Vincari Surgical CAPD helps surgeons to get it right the first time.
"Surgeons are time-strapped and have little bandwidth to accurately document patient procedures let alone review the document manually later on," said Dr. Lucian Newman III, CMO at Vincari and a practicing general surgeon. "Our CAPD solution enables precise documentation the first time, which avoids delays in transcription and reduces follow-up questions for surgeons. Through this more efficient documentation and coding process, health systems will be able to receive appropriate quality ratings and reimbursement with documentation that accurately captures the level of care provided."
Headquartered in Birmingham, AL, Vincari is the Electronic Physician Assistant designed to improve the way patient information is captured, leveraged, and delivered. Vincari's rules-based, point of care physician workflows help capture the complete picture of patient encounters from the office, bedside, or surgery suite. By leveraging learned physician behavior and existing clinical information, Vincari improves workflow efficiency and streamlines the documentation and coding process. As a result, clinical documentation and charge capture data is delivered immediately to office and hospital EMRs, all while logging case data for research, recertification, and analytical purposes.
