Features

This next-generation coding solution completely automates what was previously a resource-intensive process requiring manual interpretation of clinical documentation and coding input prior to billing. Hospitals have reported that CAC has increased coder productivity by more than 20 percent, while decreasing coder overtime by as much as 80 percent and decreasing external audit fees by as much as 50 percent.
