Use of Technology to Document Comorbid Conditions May Improve Reimbursement, Increase Documentation Accuracy Study Confirms
Date:10/10/2007

he company's AIMS application. This technology was developed specifically for anesthesiologists who traditionally see a large subset of hospital inpatients with varied medical conditions. It precisely captures a patient's existing medical conditions while assigning ICD-9 diagnosis codes to them. In the study, concurrent coding using this technology increased severity of illness and risk of mortality ratings by 16 percent and 17 percent respectively.

Accurate identification of comorbid conditions has been a challenge for healthcare providers that has only been recently addressed with technology, according to Dr. Peter Pronovost, Professor and Medical Director of the Center for Innovations in Quality Patient Care at Johns Hopkins Medical Institute and University School of Medicine. "Documenting comorbid conditions and consistent use of that data among healthcare providers has been challenging," he said. "Technological solutions to assist with identification of comorbidity have numerous benefits that include developing medical care plans specific to each patient which improves the probability of receiving correct payment from CMS. Also, with patient safety and quality measure reporting currently at the forefront of the healthcare industry, precise documentation of each case has never been more important."
