Precyse Solutions Partners With TruCode for Encoding Services


3/1/2013 10:04:56 AM

WAYNE, Pa. and ALPHARETTA, Ga., March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Precyse, a leader in health information management (HIM) technologies and services, has signed an integration and distribution agreement with TruCode®, a leading provider of encoder technology. This agreement represents another milestone for Precyse in the delivery of a state-of-the-art, single integrated platform for all clinical documentation improvement (CDI), coding and auditing activities.

Streamlining the coding process is critical for a successful transition to ICD-10. No longer will it be necessary for coders to interact with an encoder separately. The Precyse solution makes it easy for coders to validate the computer-assigned codes with the integrated code edits, references and grouper capabilities seamlessly available during the coding validation process. This all-in-one offering will enhance coder productivity and accuracy, supporting timely and accurate reimbursement. The integrated solution will also facilitate:

  • Medical coding consistency and speed;
  • Reduced billing cycle time;
  • Rapid validation of computer-assigned codes;
  • Appropriate reimbursement;
  • Easier transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10; and
  • Automated machine learning, resulting in continuous improvement of the natural language processing (NLP) results.

"Our goal is to break down the barriers between encoding and computer assisted coding so that coders have access to the tools they need when they need them, without going into a separate application," said Tom Golden, CTO for TruCode. "This partnership does just that. We're very excited about the combined solution that Precyse will deliver to the market and the coding productivity and accuracy benefits their customers will experience."

"Precyse is committed to continually introducing technology to automate manual tasks and increase productivity and throughput. An embedded encoder enables the coder to focus on the complexities of the coding process by removing those tasks that can be facilitated by technology," said Chris Powell, President of Precyse. "Our own HIM professionals have been using the TruCode encoder and have provided extremely positive feedback. It is why we are very excited to work with TruCode to help our users streamline their coding processes and recognize all the other benefits of the all-in-one Precyse solution."
