Jvion Examines How Applying Smarter Technology Delivers Smarter Clinical Documentation
Date:7/31/2013

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013

As part of their ongoing whitepaper series focused on the ICD-10 transition, Jvion recently released “Applying Smarter Technology for Smarter Documentation Improvement – Using new tools, some techy smarts, and a little ingenuity.” The emphasis in this issue is on ICD-10’s impact to clinical documentation. Put simply, clinical documentation represents what a physician/practitioner writes down or captures about a patient’s visit. Jvion examines how ICD-10 changes what is reported, current approaches to prioritizing documentation improvement activities, and how emerging technologies can lead to better program performance.

“ICD-10 has such a significant impact on clinical documentation because the act of coding itself is driven entirely by what a provider puts down about the patient encounter,” said Surya Vadlamani, Jvion CIO and author of the article. He continued, “Providers are struggling with the magnitude of the change. They have to review charts, educate their physicians, and inform existing documentation improvement efforts all by the mandated October 2014 deadline.”

Surya focuses on how providers prioritize ICD-10 documentation improvement efforts in preparation for the code conversion. Providers recognize that they cannot review every chart and educate every physician impacted by ICD-10. They have to prioritize; and current approaches to prioritization fall short. Surya explained that, “there are more advanced technologies available to providers that give them a more accurate view into the exact encounters, physicians, and ultimately the charts that are associated with ICD-10 risk. By using these tools, providers can better allocate resources while offsetting the potential financial and operational impacts posed by the new code set.”

And he goes on to argue that these same technologies can be leveraged in ongoing documentation improvement efforts. “Because these solutions rely on software, they are cost effective and easy to execute. This means that providers can use the same approach within their operational environment to pin point areas of risk and the associated charts. As an outcome to this process, providers can better protect the financial and operational health of their facility while improving patient care.”
