The transition to ICD-10 medical coding standards will improve patient care in the long-term. However, with eight times the codes of ICD-9 and increased specificity, the standards will require a totally new way of coding in order for your health system to overcome productivity and financial challenges. Clintegrity CAC - Computer-Assisted Coding solutions, in combination with Nuance Healthcare’s market-leading Clintegrity Coding and Clintegrity Compliance solutions, harnesses the power of Nuance’s Clinical Understanding (CLU) engine by automatically reading and translating electronic clinical documentation provided by healthcare practitioners into the appropriate medical codes. Clintegrity CAC solutions automatically generate suggested ICD-9-CM, CPT, ICD-10-CM, and PCS medical codes for review and validation, which accelerates code submission to patient billing systems and leads to a better result. 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 solutions have 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.
