Today at AHIMA, Nuance announced the expansion of its healthcare consulting services to help organizations more holistically respond to compliance, physician engagement, ICD-10, and shifting payment models. The newest offering, Clintegrity 360 | Compliance Services, provides the management tools and training required to effectively monitor complex coding requirements, and leverage technology to avoid issues that may affect the reliability of hospital reimbursement.
Nuance Clintegrity 360 | Compliance Services provide a customized set of educational and analytical offerings that deliver actionable strategies designed to help an organization improve the quality of coding data and flag potential areas of regulatory noncompliance. This new service provides a team of Nuance consultants to review clinical documentation and the accuracy of associated codes, develop targeted educational programs for staff, and advise on how to consistently use technology to deliver appropriate and compliant ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes for inpatient claims. This includes use of Clintegrity 360 | Compliance software, and Facility Coding solutions.
Additionally, Nuance provides specialized Clintegrity 360 | ICD-10 Education and Services, which prepare the organization’s coding workforce for more complex coding requirements while maintaining productivity and financial integrity. With the latest ICD-10 delay, many organizations are seeking educational courses to ensure that physicians, coders and clinical documentation specialists remain engaged in the transition and sustain their level of understanding through October 2015.
