Access Innovations delivers solution for new health classifications
Access Innovations has announced a comprehensive International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems 10 (ICD-10) readiness tool for its Access Integrity division. Access Integrity was formed in 2011 to leverage Access Innovations’ Data Harmony software in the healthcare industry. Using its semantic enrichment toolset, the technology automatically reads patient encounter notes to deliver highly relevant code suggestions to healthcare providers, administrators, billers and coders.
The Web-based application IntegraCoder connects the semantic analysis technology of Data Harmony with the exhaustive coding and revenue cycle/denial management resources of coding experts Find-A-Code. IntegraCoder analyzes content in electronic medical records (EMRs) and provides highly relevant diagnosis and procedure suggestions. Its indexing system recognizes key concepts within an EMR and delivers suggested codes for users to select from, increasing accuracy in clinical documentation.
ICD-9, the accepted diagnostic coding standard in the United States since 1978, utilized approximately 14,000 codes, while the updated ICD-10 standard expands this number to more than 68,000.
