Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
UC Irvine Medical Center is no stranger to innovation or industry leadership. It has Orange County’s only comprehensive cancer center, level I trauma center and is a leader in robot-assisted surgery. UC Irvine has been listed among “America’s Best Hospitals” by US News World Report for 12 consecutive years. So when it came to ICD-10, the organization looked to the market to find a leading approach and offering that would reduce the code conversion’s potential financial, operational, and clinical impacts.
“We wanted to make sure that the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 did not leave us vulnerable to reduced or lost reimbursements,” said Jennifer Hughes, RHIA, Director, Health Information Management for UC Irvine Health. “Our goal was to find a vendor who could help us navigate this transition, analyze historical claims data to identify areas at most risk for revenue shifts and then develop specific mitigation strategies to minimize those risks. Jvion’s depth of analysis, translation of outcomes into action, and application of risk stratification tools, including their RevWalk crosswalk solution for code mapping, completely met our needs.”
Surya Vadlamani, Jvion’s CIO and Chief Solution Architect, reacted to the win by saying that, “we are honored to be the select vendor for UC Irvine Medical Center and look forward to working with and serving such a prestigious organization.”
