Iodine Software Teams with TruCode to Help Health Systems Capture More Earned Revenue

Iodine Software’s 2022 Best in KLAS solution integrates with TruCode Encoder Essentials software to drive more efficient and accurate clinical documentation improvement.

AUSTIN, Tex. & MOBILE, Al. – September 7, 2022 – Iodine Software, the leading enterprise AI software in healthcare, and TruCode, a CPSI company that provides encoder technology solutions that maximize coding efficiency, today announced a partnership that enables health systems and hospitals to more effectively perform clinical documentation improvement (CDI).

Iodine Software will integrate TruCode Encoder Essentials directly into its AwareCDI suite. The combined solutions will provide CDI teams with easy access to detailed diagnosis and procedure code reference information directly in their workflows, in addition to access to complete official code books.

“Clinical documentation improvement is one of the most important areas of hospital operations and has a direct impact on both revenue performance and clinical quality. However, it often requires healthcare professionals to complete complex and tedious work that can negatively impact organizational performance. We want our clients’ CDI teams to have the best tools and resources available to them to streamline their work, minimize stress and create a positive working environment” said William Chan, Iodine Software Co-founder and CEO. “Providing TruCode’s industry-leading technology within our AwareCDI Suite will allow CDI professionals to have the confidence that every claim has a complete and accurate reflection of the patient encounter, ultimately supporting earned-revenue opportunities and reducing denials.”

AwareCDI is based on Iodine Software’s proprietary CognitiveML technology, the most advanced and versatile AI engine available in healthcare. It’s the only available market solution that addresses mid-cycle revenue cycle leakage at each step, which is one reason why it was recently named the 2022 Best In KLAS CDI Software by KLAS Research with a score of 91.2.

By embedding TruCode’s robust coding resources directly into AwareCDI, CDI teams can easily access resources that support accurate capture of documentation and code assignment resulting in appropriate claim reimbursement and accurate reporting of patient outcomes.

“This partnership offers tremendous opportunity for hospitals and health systems because it brings together two industry-leading technologies, each with proven success. By combining TruCode’s expertise in encoder technology and coding workflows with Iodine’s powerful AI engine, we can deliver real value for healthcare organizations looking to improve the quality of care they deliver while improving revenue capture,” said Chris Fowler, CPSI CEO.

An estimated 84 percent of healthcare leaders believe that a root cause of lost or decreased revenue is inaccurate clinical documentation and coding, which can cost the average hospital $5-10M for the average 250-bed hospital in revenue leakage. By integrating AI and coding software directly into a CDI team’s workflow, provider organizations can capture earned revenue and minimize physician burnout caused by documentation and coding processes.

HCPro Partners with Artifact Health to Provide Compliant, Time-Saving Clinical Documentation Improvement Templates for Provider Queries

Partnership provides hospitals with extensive library of compliant, CDI physician query templates built into mobile platform

Artifact Health, which provides the first and only mobile platform that streamlines the physician query process, announced today that it has partnered with HCPro to provide and maintain a comprehensive library of compliant clinical documentation improvement (CDI) physician query templates. Artifact’s HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based platform engages physicians, CDI specialists and coders with an easier and faster process to drive improvements in hospital and physician coding accuracy and publicly-reported quality measures.

As an acknowledged industry authority in healthcare compliance for over 30 years, HCPro delivers information, education, training and consulting products and services that meet the specialized needs of the healthcare industry. Its team of renowned CDI educators—including Laurie Prescott, Sharme Brodie, and Allen Frady—have applied their substantial clinical and coding experience to the design of the template library, which will provide both compliance and process guidance so healthcare facilities can better capture the true complexity of their patient population.

The query template library will address critical areas of query practice, including:
* ICD-10-CM/PCS coding classifications
* DRG groupings
* MCC/CC diagnoses
* Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs)
* Severity of illness/risk of mortality
* And more

“HCPro is a pioneer in delivering high-quality information to support the ever changing needs of healthcare business,” says HCPro chief product officer David Cella. “Collaborating with a leading-edge CDI solution like Artifact broadens HCPro’s mission to provide specialized, expert-reviewed content and education to the CDI community.”

Typically, the query process is onerous and time-consuming for physicians. With Artifact Health’s mobile platform, physicians respond to a query compliantly in seconds, often with as few as three taps on their smartphone. Query activity is automatically tracked and reported, rather than manually recorded by CDI specialists and coders, and available in real-time dashboards and reports.

“This partnership provides a unique opportunity to extend HCPro’s deep CDI knowledge and expertise to physicians in a way that ensures high-quality, accurate clinical documentation of patient care,” said Marisa MacClary, Co-founder and CEO of Artifact Health. “With Artifact, hospitals and health systems can immediately integrate HCPro’s standardized, compliant query templates and educational guidance into their physician query workflow to improve quality measure capture and reimbursement accuracy.”
