MedQuest and M*Modal Demonstrating End-to-End Solutions for Bringing Interactive Collaborative Intelligence to Clinical Documents at 83rd AHIMA Convention and Exhibition


10/4/2011 5:46:31 AM

FRANKLIN, Tenn., Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MedQuist Holdings Inc., a leading provider of integrated clinical documentation solutions for the U.S. healthcare system, announced today it will attend the 83rd AHIMA Convention and Exhibition providing cutting edge product demonstrations and thought leadership presentations. The company's Collaborative Intelligence Solutions -- including Speech and Natural Language Understanding (NLU), Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC), EHR adoption and Clinical Content Discovery tools -- will be highlighted for the audience of health information management (HIM) professionals.

The healthcare industry is facing a range of challenges like EHR adoption, Meaningful Use, the transition to ICD-10 and development of Accountable Care Organizations (ACO). The company's Collaborative Intelligence solutions can help customers create actionable, meaningful clinical documentation to meet these challenges and transform the industry.

The company works with 2,400 hospital and clinics, 850 physician practices and 165,000 physicians through technology and services that capture the Patient's Story by facilitating workflow, enabling collaboration and providing insight for improved business processes and delivery of care. To help smooth the transition to ICD-10, the company's CAC solution automatically assigns diagnosis codes to documents for review and combines the narrative with the data, providing clinical and business analytics for reporting and decision-making purposes.

"As healthcare moves to a value-driven payment model, HIM and Coding professionals seek actionable information that help drive interaction, collaboration and intelligence throughout the healthcare continuum," notes Vern Davenport, Chairman of the Board and CEO of MedQuist. "Transforming the Patient Story into useful analytics using MedQuist and M*Modal technology provides critical knowledge that enables differentiated decision making, speeds the revenue cycle with proper reimbursement and improves patient care."

MedQuist and M*Modal will demonstrate their technology solutions at Booth 1218 and the AHIMA CAC/ICD-10 Showcase at Booth 2101.

AHIMA attendees can also learn more about Natural Language Processing (NLP) by joining Lynn Kosegi, PMP, and Jurgen Fritsch, Ph.D., company thought leaders on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, at 4:45 PM MT in Ballroom E-H (Salt Lake Palace Convention Center). They will discuss NLU's creation of health information in a way that both preserves the value of the Patient Story and satisfies the need for structured data in an EHR environment.
