The Valley Hospital and Webmedx Partner to Reduce DNFB, Improve Clinical Documentation and Automate Quality Reporting

ATLANTA, Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Webmedx, a leading medical content provider and the third largest medical transcription service in the U.S., today announced that The Valley Hospital, a 451-bed acute care facility and member of Valley Health System in Ridgewood, New Jersey, has begun an enterprise-wide implementation of Webmedx's newest solution for clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and quality reporting, QualityAnalytics™. In addition, the organization recently installed Webmedx's web-native technology, Enterprise5, for clinical documentation and is using the company's Best in KLAS* outsourced transcription services to support over 800 physicians across all clinical departments.

"QualityAnalytics moves our medical record reviews from retrospective and manual to concurrent and automated," mentions Dolores Sarra, HIM Director. By identifying and reviewing cases sooner, Sarra expects to shorten the entire revenue cycle and reduce discharged-not-final-billed. "Rather than querying physicians for quality issues or coding clarification after discharge, we'll be able to immediately identify cases and take action to capture the documentation we need concurrently, while the patient is still in-house," she adds. QualityAnalytics streamlines, automates and aggregates case review thereby doubling productivity. Quality nurses and other case reviewers review 100% more cases in 40-60% less time.

Brad Haspel, Assistant Vice President of Ancillary Services at The Valley Hospital, was instrumental in naming Webmedx as the organization's new clinical documentation partner. "We selected Webmedx for their advanced technology infrastructure, extremely rapid report turnaround times and reputation for delivering on promises," Haspel mentions. The company was tied for first place in keeping promises, according to the *KLAS 2010 "Transcription Services: Competition, Technology, and Consolidation" report. Rated #1 in their category for professional services by KLAS two years in a row, Webmedx received the highest overall service score ever in 2009, and an even higher score of 92.3% in the "2010 Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards" report available at: This achievement has never been equaled in the history of KLAS Research for this category.

An advanced NLP, text and data mining system, QualityAnalytics identifies and abstracts discrete information concurrently from narrative, free-text documents and other clinical systems, and converts it to actionable data for a variety of secondary uses. Discrete data derived from narrative reports, Narradata™, can be used for upload to the EHR, clinical documentation improvement (CDI), coding reviews, RAC audits, patient safety, core measures monitoring and more. Users conduct ad hoc searches on virtually any phrase or diagnostic code using the NLP engine, without the need for custom reports or IT department intervention.

"The future of Webmedx is clinical document intelligence through searchable text and narrative informatics," mentions Sean Carroll, CEO, Webmedx. "We are honored to partner with The Valley Hospital in these three clinical documentation areas," he concludes.
