Confidence from a proven solution
Optum360 has developed comprehensive charge capture technology with proprietary algorithms to reliably capture resource utilization and patient care complexity for consistent charging across outpatient operations.
Optum® Lynx Outpatient Charging Applications are available for Emergency Department, clinic, oncology, observation and infusion services. Each application integrates with your existing EMR workflow and allows customization to meet each department’s specific needs.
The Optum Lynx technology uses regulatory guidelines maintained by industry experts to facilitate hospital and clinic charge capture and code assignment. These guidelines drive consistency by assigning the same charges for identical services across an organization.
For more than 30 years, the results of the Optum Lynx algorithms have been evaluated hospital-by-hospital and record-by-record. Clients can be confident the appropriate charges are calculated for the services provided.
Infusion and injection calculations are included across multiple service lines.
