Integrated clinical documentation solutions delivered through a single, cloud-based architecture by ezDI
Louisville, KY (PRWEB) May 22, 2015
ezDI, Inc., a venture of Mediscribes, Inc. today announced that it will provide Auburn Community Hospital with a fully integrated suite of revenue cycle software, including computer-assisted coding (CAC), clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and a compliance module. ezDI will deliver the solution through a flexible, cloud-based platform that will enable Auburn Community physicians to collaborate with Health Information Management, coders and CDI staff, providing high-quality coding and clinical documentation anywhere, anytime, helping to reduce documentation delays, improve productivity, streamline workflows and institute a myriad of dashboards for real-time monitoring of the revenue cycle process.
Auburn Community Hospital (ACH) is a not-for-profit, 99-bed acute care facility serving a population of approximately 80,000.
Located southwest of Syracuse, New York, ACH is an Iroquois Health Alliance (IHA) member hospital and is the sole provider of acute and general hospital services in Cayuga County and the surrounding areas, located in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York.
Founded in 1878 by a group of community-minded individuals who recognized the growing health care needs of Auburn and Cayuga County, the original 13-bed hospital was called Auburn City Hospital, located at the current site on Lansing Street.
"Auburn Community Hospital is excited to have joined forces with ezDI in a Flagship partner agreement for ezDI's Computer-assisted Coding (CAC) solution," said Amy Sanderson-DeRose, RHIA, Privacy Officer & Director for Health Information Management at Auburn Community Hospital. "With ICD-10 just around the corner, we anticipate that the addition of CAC will help us through the October 1st transition by giving us a fully integrated CAC, encoder, and analytics package/product which will support our Coding staff more than any other product on the market. We anticipate that ezDI will help us by eliminating backlogs and improve Coder productivity almost immediately. Beyond that, we will expect to see denials management improvement along with decreases in turn-around-time and A/R days."
Ms. Sanderson DeRose further said of ezCAC that, "The Natural Language Processing engine was the most innovative and impressive of its kind. This engine reads the medical record’s clinical documentation and understands the terminology. That alone is quite impressive, but ezDI seems to takes it a step further. This technology automates abstraction and assigns the ICD-9/ ICD-10 diagnostic and procedure codes. This is the technology we feel is absolutely necessary to support the Coders and positively impact our revenue cycle along with the endless possibilities of improvement in the areas of CDI, Quality, and to eventually, positively impact patient care."
We are delighted to partner with ezDI and look forward to work with them on the cutting edge of technology! I haven’t been this excited about a product in a long time!"
