You no longer have to choose between quality documentation and quality time with patients. Clinicians can easily detail diagnoses, problems and procedures using our next-generation computer-assisted physician documentation (CAPD) solution. And because Dragon Medical Advisor fits naturally into existing Dragon Medical and physician workflows, you can spend more time on what matters most—patients.
In seamless coordination with the Dragon Medical speech recognition workflow, Dragon Medical Advisor analyzes physicians’ notes in real time. Advice appears as physicians dictate or type their notes so they can immediately update their documentation.
This intelligent virtual advisor intuitively highlights areas where additional specificity is necessary to adequately capture each patient’s severity of illness and level of care provided—reducing the number of post-discharge and out-of-context queries from coders to the physician.
Deliver the best possible care—all while being acknowledged for it. Thorough and concurrent documentation contributes to better care coordination. Meanwhile, coding and quality teams receive the details needed to report accurate outcomes and initiate appropriate reimbursement.
Inform better coding with Nuance’s extensive research on the most common documentation deficiencies resulting from undocumented problems, lack of specificity and missing procedures that impact Case Mix Index (CMI), denials and Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs).
Cloud-based delivery integrated with Dragon Medical One and Dragon Medical Network Edition—no additional software or hardware to install. Expanded content with essential ICD-10 diagnosis codes and CMS Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC) to better define patients’ true medical conditions and optimize their Risk Adjustment Factor (RAF) scores. This helps providers capture appropriate reimbursement for the disease burden of patients and avoid penalties for ICD-10 noncompliance.
Dragon Medical Advisor analyzes patient notes as they’re created so physicians can immediately update their documentation with the appropriate level of specificity while the encounter is in their working memory. As a result, notes are more precise and complete and physicians receive fewer post-discharge and out-of-context queries from CDI and coding teams. As physicians begin to naturally document more complete notes, the advisor will fade into the background.
Complete and concurrent documentation improvement reduces retrospective queries and enables coding teams to accelerate billing and reduce denials. Increased specificity of the patient’s diagnoses, conditions and procedures improves CMI, and ensures appropriate documentation of the disease burden within the patient population for risk adjustment through proper HCC coding.
Background assessment tools provide detailed utilization metrics, advice identifiers, and physician activity. Opportunity assessments uncover clinical documentation improvement opportunities by diagnoses and physician, while Healthcheck dashboards proactively monitor physician utilization and overall program success.
