Clintegrity 360 | NarrativeSearch is a clinical data-extraction tool built on Nuance’s Clinical Language Understanding (CLU) technology. CLU is a software that analyzes written language much like a human does when he reads, gleaning from text relevant information about a patient. After that, CLU structures information into discrete, standardized data. Clintegrity 360 | NarrativeSearch thus takes unstructured, narrative-based clinical documentation and instantly converts it to patient data that can be searched and utilized for regulatory and other clinical initiatives. Because the data can now be accessed, clinicians can continue to dictate using their preferred workflow.
Physicians document patient information using their preferred workflow, dictating or typing the EHR or through the transcription platform. Clintegrity 360 | NarrativeSearch takes unstructured, narrative-based notes and converts them—in real time—to actionable, discrete data. Data then becomes available for searches and queries. Queries can be created, stored, shared and maintained by users. Clintegrity 360 | NarrativeSearch processes each document individually to create patient lists that flag patient’s documents as having met or not met the query parameters. Unlike retrospective, academic, analytical databases, Clintegrity 360 | NarrativeSearch enables concurrent and clinically actionable searches.
As more and more patients are admitted through your emergency department (ED), accurate documentation is becoming critically important. Due to the complexity of ED cases, the hectic work environment and the need to make rapid decisions, in many cases patient acuity is inaccurately reflected because there's not enough documentation of the patient's clinical situation. Staff may accurately document the injury that brought the patient in, but miss secondary diagnoses and/or pre-existing conditions. What's more, a problem list isn't usually created until the patient is moved onto the floor...if ever. Improving the quality of the clinical documentation promotes better communication and creates an opportunity to positively impact clinical outcomes.
Nuance has developed a powerful solution and a new clinical staff position to help you ensure better clinical outcomes and accurate reimbursement.
