Essential intelligence for modern coding operations
Staffing competition is intense, productivity demands have never been higher, and ICD-10 has added immense complexities. To meet these challenges, hospitals nationwide rely on computer-assisted coding (CAC) with patented LifeCode® technology from Optum360®. With more intelligent CAC, you can:
- Increase staff productivity. Complete more cases in less time with automated prioritization.
- Ensure traceability. Link codes to clinical documentation for an improved audit trail.
- Improve accuracy. Resolve claims with concurrent coding and querying — before patient discharge.
Carle increases coding productivity, accuracy
After careful evaluation, Carle Foundation Hospital chose Optum Enterprise CAC to improve and maintain its coding operations, and as a result, achieved a 20 percent productivity increase for inpatient coding, and accuracy levels of 95 percent and greater.
Dramatic coding improvements at Trinity Health
Trinity Health’s coder shortage and lack of CAC technology caused a large coding backlog that affected financial operations and organizational efficiency. Smart planning lead to a solution that enabled remote coding and improved coding efficiency, accuracy and quality.
“Optum360 truly helped transform our organization.”
Hallmark Health System leaders share how they reduced outstanding AR by over $8M, slashed coding backlogs and improved quality ratings by modernizing coding and CDI operations.
Making concurrent coding a reality
HIM leaders at Mission Health System in Asheville, N.C., were asking for a coding platform that could empower concurrent coding and querying. Enterprise CAC from Optum360 delivered.
It takes a deep bench to develop the most sophisticated computer-assisted coding systems available. Optum360 experts work shoulder to shoulder with providers to make coding work.
