AI has been an area of significant interest for the health care industry for several years, and many health systems, payers, and life science organizations have (or plan to) incorporate AI and automation into their business strategy.

CPSI Announces Partnership with ChartWise Medical Systems to Offer Enhanced TruBridge Clinical Documentation Solutions to Improve Reimbursement, Compliance and Quality Scores for Providers
MOBILE, Ala. (September 23, 2020) — CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI), a healthcare solutions company, and ChartWise Medical Systems Inc. (ChartWise), a three-time best in KLAS award-winning computer-assisted clinical document improvement (CDI) company, today announced a partnership that will help healthcare organizations of all sizes improve clinical documentation accuracy and overall medical reimbursement.
To strategically manage costs, while also requiring improvements in the quality of patient care, payers continue to shift from fee-for-service to fee-for-value reimbursement models. However, providers struggle with incomplete or inaccurate documentation that often results in incorrect billing, reimbursement and quality reporting. By leveraging the ChartWise computer-assisted CDI software, physicians and clinical documentation specialists (CDS) have the tools and guidance necessary to improve documentation quality, resulting in reduced claim denials and more accurate reimbursement.
Dr. Jon Elion, founder of ChartWise, said, “We have spent the last 25 years focusing on technology innovations that help healthcare providers work smarter, not harder. ChartWise enables patient care to be delivered in a more efficient and effective manner, while empowering the clinicians and staff with the tools they need every day.”
“TruBridge provides end-to-end revenue cycle management products and services to healthcare organizations of all sizes,” said Chris Fowler, president of TruBridge. “Through this partnership with ChartWise, we will enhance our existing CDI service with the software and technology that will ultimately improve reimbursement for clients. With this electronic health record (EHR)-agnostic offering, we believe there will be real interest in the added value to the bottom line of many healthcare organizations – especially considering the current financial dynamics being experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Steven Mason, president and chief executive officer of ChartWise, said, “We are proud and excited to have a mutually beneficial partnership that will improve the value proposition of the TruBridge CDI offering. Our award-winning solution with built-in intelligent expertise guides physicians and CDS toward a complete diagnostic picture, automatically analyzing lab data, medications and procedures to help identify complications and additional diagnoses that have not been specified completely in the notes. The result is improved patient acuity determination, quality scores and revenue capture.”
