Ingenious Med Announces a New Coding & Compliance Tool, MasterCoder
Date:7/1/2009

ATLANTA, July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- With the growing potential threat of Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) audits facing healthcare organizations as well as the increased legislative plans currently in process within congress to further combat fraud in the medical system, Ingenious Med releases a new tool, MasterCoder, to help its customers address these concerns.

MasterCoder for the Web, an integrated E&M coding solution, is the newest enhancement to IM Practice Manager. MasterCoder is now available to Ingenious Med customers whether they access IM Practice Manager through the web or a mobile device.

"MasterCoder has improved our practice by saving time and eliminating the fears of over and under-coding," said a user at Auburn Memorial Hospital. "It has also helped us capture appropriate higher level services by guiding us through the proper coding algorithms and documentation. Additionally, it is extremely easy to use."

Ingenious Med's MasterCoder is an educational tool, based on guidelines directly from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), that is designed to assist physicians during coding decision-making. MasterCoder works alongside IM Practice Manager to prompt and aid documentation of E&M and time-based codes at the point-of-care, without disrupting workflow. MasterCoder functionality provides comfort and confidence in the coding process by simulating what it would be like to have a coding consultant present at every patient encounter.

This solution gives practice administrators the ability to educate, prompt and record E&M decision-making for their physicians while giving physicians real-time feedback and knowledge into accurate coding.

"MasterCoder is designed to work with a physician and compliment current workflow and documentation processes," said Dr. Steve Liu, chairman and founder at Ingenious Med. "MasterCoder serves as a great educational tool to aid physicians in coding appropriately. Even extremely experienced physicians can benefit from using it."

Dr. Bob Zurcher, a physician manager at several facilities utilizing Ingenious Med, is responsible for ensuring new physicians in his groups learn how to code correctly. New physicians are required to complete the Hospitalist Curriculum from E/M University. This is a series of courses that help educate the physicians in proper coding and documentation. Zurcher states that while "IM MasterCoder has not replaced E/M University, it works beautifully as a complementary part of ongoing coding education and is extremely easy to use."

"Providing our groups with state-of-the-art, easy to use technology that aides them in providing higher quality of care to their patients is key to all that we do at Ingenious Med," said Mike Pickering, CTO at Ingenious Med. "We are confident that the addition of MasterCoder to IM Practice Manager will heighten product versatility and prove invaluable to its users. The best part is -- for current clients, this additional functionality is offered free of charge as a part of our all-inclusive software solution."
