WAYNE, Pa., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Precyse Solutions, a leader in Health Information Management (HIM) services and technologies, will showcase its services and debut its new Automated Clinical Documentation software platform, including a unique Computer Assisted Coding software engine, at the upcoming AHIMA Convention & Exhibit in Orlando, Fla., September 25-30 (Booth # 1809). In keeping with the show's theme, Prosper Through Change, Precyse will unveilthe latest addition to its robust HIM portfolio at the show: PrecyseCode, the most advanced health information management platform available today.
"As the HIM partner for many of the world's best healthcare organizations, Precyse is highly committed to finding innovative ways to improve productivity, quality and accuracy, streamline processes and increase revenue for our hospital and physician practice clients," said Ken Lacy, Chief Information Officer, Precyse Solutions. "In the Precyse AHIMA booth, the team will demonstrate PrecyseCode, in collaboration with our technology partner M*Modal. We are excited to show providers how PrecyseCode breaks through the clutter of an antiquated process to streamline and modernize the information management workflow."
Today, the Baptist Health System (BHS) in Birmingham, Ala., uses PrecyseCode to resolve a variety of challenges in its coding department. According to Chloe Phillips, Corporate Director of HIM, BHS, "The BHS team was frustrated by a number of issues, including recruiting and retaining quality coders, optimizing the coders' proficiency, capturing revenue that human error may have missed, retaining a coding audit trail and meeting changing compliance rules and regulations. Working with the Precyse team and technologies, BHS was able to increase productivity, accuracy and quality, while significantly reducing costs."
In addition to PrecyseCode, while attending AHIMA, the company will showcase its total HIM services, interim management solutions for healthcare organizations, along with Precyse University and ICD-10 educational programming services. As hospitals and health systems transition from paper to electronic medical records, Precyse supports key initiatives, including EHR transition, clinical documentation improvement and program implementation, medical record purges, loose filing and analysis of backlogs.
Health systems can encounter unexpected volume shifts, management turnover, staffing gaps or the transition from paper to EHR software, which can negatively impact HIM operations. Precyse offers a variety of options to improve and streamline HIM departments, including management services, transcription, coding and other vital department functions. Additionally, Precyse provides extensive HIM Department operational assessments that review current structure and procedures, revenue cycle and billing effects, and offer recommendations for improvements, based on best practices.
"Healthcare administrative managers face declining reimbursements, spiraling administrative costs, demands for quality information and ongoing staffing challenges, which can hinder HIM department efficiency," Lacy continued. "Precyse Solutions is a proven, experienced business partner, focused on delivering quality services and technologies to enhance and improve operations. We look forward to showcasing our unique solutions, extraordinary track record and latest success stories while at the AHIMA conference."
