The journey to clinical documentation excellence takes many paths—all leading toward one goal. Nuance CDE solutions offer industry-leading workflow management and analytics for CDI teams to drive quality care through better documentation because every patient counts.
Documentation guidance at the point-of-care makes it easier for physicians to capture patient stories and avoid rework. Automated encounter prioritization and worklist management lets highly skilled CDS staff spend less time searching through charts. Clinicians working together without limitations means more time to focus on quality improvement initiatives.
There's a reason why 90% of Nuance clients achieve the highest quality ratings in the industry. Nearly 30 years of experience puts proven, clinically-focused documentation strategies and the knowledge to use them in your hands.
Understanding your baseline lets you set the bar. An actionable intelligence framework with real time insights give you the power to measure success, analyze peer comparisons and pinpoint opportunities to improve your program.
Cloud-based solutions mean lower installation, deployment and maintenance costs. Updates are easier to manage too. Our clinical documentation excellence solutions are hosted on Microsoft® Azure, a HITRUST CSF-certified hosting infrastructure, to support privacy, security, and compliance.
CDE solutions allow the flexibility to personalize workflow as well as establish uniformity for how the team prioritizes their work day, develop and sort worklists, identify opportunities to initiate clarifications and tailor communications with physicians according to each patient's situation.
Productivity is important. And adding more staff can be difficult. Encounter prioritization, automated workflows, intuitive navigation, built in MS and APR-DRG groupers and quick access to reference materials save time, and even let your team expand case coverage.
Physicians and CDI teams work more closely through clinically-focused clarifications and visibility into actions taken on automated advice. Case management and quality teams have concurrent insight into working DRGs, length of stay and HIM and coding teams can collaborate on final DRG reconciliation.
Clinical strategies and guidance help uncover opportunities to engage physicians in a clinical dialogue about each patient and identify diagnoses based on the clinical evidence in the medical record. Documentation accurately reflects patient diagnoses, procedures and co-morbid conditions that are important to determining appropriate reimbursement and risk-adjusted quality ratings. And specific evidence-based documentation reduces delays in the billing cycle and improves the process for managing denials.
