The global computer-assisted coding market is experiencing a high growth during the recent years:



Key Players are 3M Health Information Systems (U.S.), OptumInsight, Inc. (U.S.), McKesson Corporation (U.S.), Nuance Communications (U.S.), Cerner Corporation (U.S.), Dolbey Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Precyse Solutions LLC (U.S.)

The computer-assisted coding (CAC) technology automatically produces medical codes directly from clinical documents. Computer-assisted coding is a tool that helps healthcare facilities to manage the complexity of ICD-10 coding. The productivity is expected to increase from 15% to 20% after the implementation of computer-assisted coding tools. The Global computer-assisted coding market is expected to reach $3.5 billion by 2019.

There are two types of CAC solutions namely standalone software and integrated software. Standalone solutions include natural language processing (NLP) software and structured input software. NLP applications scan and interpret unstructured clinicians notes using specialized linguistic algorithms extracting the clinical facts that support the assignment of codes. Structured input applications integrate the coding into the clinical documentation process, producing clinical documents with embedded codes. NLP applications work with clinical documentation practices which include unstructured text such as dictation, speech recognition and transcription. Factors such as improving healthcare IT infrastructure, rising investments in CAC software integration and increasing number of healthcare facilities are some of the key factors expected to play a vital role in the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The mandatory conversion of ICD-9 to ICD-10 in the North American healthcare industry by October 1, 2015 is expected to drive the market growth. This has led to the growing implementation of ICD-10 diagnosis and procedure codes for insurance claim reimbursement payment billing and revenue cycle management.
