New York, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2010
Meta Health Technology, a leading provider of health information management software solutions, announced today that Aultman Hospital has licensed its chart abstracting software, PowerAbstract.
According to Judi Shertzer, Aultman's Director of Coding and Clinical Documentation, the hospital anticipates significant gains in HIM efficiency with the Meta solution. "We'll have direct access to our encoder within the abstracting workflow. In addition, PowerAbstract gives our coders and abstractors a single customized screen to work from, which really simplifies their lives. Another important advantage is the product's superior reporting capabilities. PowerAbstract has both customized and standard reports for severity indicators, and it's easy to produce the reports we need. Finally, because the product is ICD-10 ready, we can be proactive in terms of preparing for the new coding system."
"We are very gratified that Aultman Hospital has chosen to use our PowerAbstract solution," says Eli Nahmias, President and CEO of Meta Health Technology. "We see more and more hospitals striving for measurable productivity gains in this environment. To achieve those gains, they will need to use sophisticated, best-of-breed applications such as ours. In addition, looking ahead to 2013 and the new ICD-10 coding structure, hospitals will want to use proven solutions like PowerAbstract to ensure a successful transition."
