Launches Clintegrity 360 Compliance Services to Address Complex Coding Challenges and Increase Coding Accuracy
AHIMA CONFERENCE, San Diego, September 29, 2014 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced it has expanded its healthcare consulting services that help organizations improve clinical documentation and coding accuracy, optimize quality outcomes and reduce risk of claims denials and penalties. The newest offering, Clintegrity 360 | Compliance Services, provides the management tools and training required to effectively monitor complex coding requirements, and leverage technology to avoid issues that may affect the reliability of hospital reimbursement.
“We’ve heard our clients’ growing concerns about compliance, physician engagement, ICD-10 and shifting payment models and we are here to help,” said Trace Devanny, president of the healthcare division, Nuance. “We’ve offered widely-successful consulting services for more than 20 years using proven clinical expertise, best practices and distinctive methodologies to help clients succeed. By broadening our consulting services, Nuance can collaborate more deeply with our healthcare clients as strategic partners to help them achieve their desired goals.”
Nuance Clintegrity 360 | Compliance Services provide a customized set of educational and analytical offerings that deliver actionable strategies designed to help an organization improve the quality of coding data and flag potential areas of regulatory noncompliance. This new service provides a team of Nuance consultants to review clinical documentation and the accuracy of associated codes, develop targeted educational programs for staff, and advise on how to consistently use technology to deliver appropriate and compliant ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes for inpatient claims. This includes use of Clintegrity 360 | Compliance software, and Facility Coding solutions.
Additionally, Nuance provides specialized Clintegrity 360 | ICD-10 Education and Services, which prepare the organization’s coding workforce for more complex coding requirements while maintaining productivity and financial integrity. With the latest ICD-10 delay, many organizations are seeking educational courses to ensure that physicians, coders and clinical documentation specialists remain engaged in the transition and sustain their level of understanding through October 2015.
