Clintegrity 360 | Computer Assisted Physician Documentation

Put smart technology to work

Automated, clinically appropriate guidance and clarifications

Clintegrity 360| CAPD is a Computer Assisted Physician Documentation technology designed to help physicians include details necessary to support ICD-9 coding today and streamline the transition to ICD-10. With revolutionary Clinical Language Understanding (CLU) technology and over 20 years of innovation driving Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) success, Nuance Healthcare solutions powered by JA Thomas Advanced Practice Clinical Documentation Improvement strategies go beyond just using documentation to support coding. Automated, clinically appropriate guidance and clarifications are presented to physicians at natural points during their workflow. As an automated extension to your CDI program this combined solution helps physicians document the details required for communication of care, reimbursement and quality reporting in their preferred workflow. Utilizing the power of Clinical Language Understanding (CLU) to analyze and understand the content of a dictated note in "real time" allows Clintegrity 360 |CAPD to identify gaps and ambiguities in the note and gives the physician pertinent and focused suggestions to improve clinical documentation. Automating the CDI process in such as way engages physicians at the point at which they are documenting care and focusing on communication about the patient, enabling them to more efficiently indicate details relevant to ongoing patient care and communication with other care givers. Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialist teams are able to review the automated interaction with the physician allowing them to focus their efforts on more complex cases and continued quality improvement initiatives.

Clintegrity 360 positions your organization for success, meeting the challenges of ICD-10, Value Based Purchasing and other Quality reporting needs and delivers the right outcomes for your patients, your clinicians, your organization, and your bottom line.


Put smart technology to work

Clintegrity 360 |CAPD is an automated interactive system that will help physicians increase accuracy and completeness in their documentation and ensure reimbursement better reflects the level of care provided. By bringing the clarification process closer to the documentation workflow physicians are able to address missing details while still focused on documenting the patient’s treatment and care. CAPD enables physicians to continue using narrative — their preferred mode of documentation — in addition to structured data entry through advancements in speech recognition and Clinical Language Understanding technology. This optimal combination of speech and understanding technology offers the necessary balance in clinical documentation to communicate the essence of what’s happening with each patient while still addressing organizational needs for discrete data elements and details to support reporting requirements.

Ultimately, Clintegrity 360 |CAPD allows your organization to put smart technology to work to help improve physician documentation processes that ensure appropriate reimbursement, more accurate quality reporting, and support the transition to ICD-10.


How Nuance makes a difference

Workflow

Capturing all diagnoses makes it possible to set the principal diagnosis correctly at the beginning of the patient’s stay, and helps to ensure that appropriate treatment and care shorten the overall length of stay, guide post discharge care and reduce potential readmission. The severity of illness and risk of mortality will be accurately documented and proper details will be available for coding either manually or using Computer Assisted Coding for the correct DRG assignment.

Additionally, benefits of documented secondary diagnoses include:

  • Accurate mortality index, observed and expected mortality stats (O/E)
  • Appropriate severity of illness (SOI) for public report cards
  • Accurate APR-DRG Severity of Illness and Risk of Mortality
  • Favorable preparation for ICD-10

Clintegrity 360 | CAPD automatically reviews all physician documentation for a patient’s stay, looking at the patient’s story in its entirety, and asking physicians for more information only when necessary. As physicians become more specific in their documentation, the number of clarifications will naturally reduce. Clarification response and agreement rates are maintained in a comprehensive audit trail, allowing for evaluation and continuous improvement of clinical documentation improvement processes. Automated review means every document, for every patient, is evaluated with the same level of consistency and high quality, leveraging the latest published guidelines, which are automatically updated on a regular basis. This helps to immediately increase the coverage of concurrent documentation review programs without the need to increase staff.

Ultimately, Computer Assisted Physician Documentation allows your organization to put smart technology to work to help improve physician documentation processes that ensure appropriate reimbursement, more accurate quality reporting, and support the transition to ICD-10.
