Yakima, Washington (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
VitalWare, the leader in business intelligence for ICD-10 and beyond, today announced the company’s VP of Coding and Compliance, Jill Wolf, CCS, will be co-presenting at HIMSS14 in Orlando, FL with Jackie Hinderks, Director of Revenue at Rice Memorial Hospital in Willmar, MN. The presentation entitled: “Provider Goes Beyond Predictive Modeling to Anticipate Financial and Documentation Impacts,” details how Rice Memorial, a VitalWare client, used VitalWare’s technology solutions to identify ICD-10 risk areas and an analysis of documentation practices through an intensive ICD-10 clinical documentation gap and analytics review.
The presentation explains how Rice Memorial created a step-by-step plan for moving beyond analytics to confirm or negate predictive risks by identifying real documentation deficiencies and MS-DRG shifts. They also identified measurable documentation deficiency benchmarks, procured tools and created techniques for effecting positive improvements. The program will demonstrate to C-suite executives how a DRG-focused ICD-10 coding and documentation gap analysis can better focus ICD-10 education and training efforts.
“VitalWare will be demonstrating our complete line of technology solutions that contribute to the next generation of revenue cycle success by delivering innovative, cloud-based technology solutions that enrich and integrate key processes, including documentation, coding, billing and auditing,” commented Kerry Martin, CEO and Founder of VitalWare. “As Jill and Jackie’s presentation will clearly detail, our solutions can provide a significant, positive impact on the fiscal health of providers, payers and healthcare vendors,” Martin added.
