IntegraCoder Version 2.0, the medical coding application developed by Access Integrity, a division of Access Innovations, Inc., and coding experts Find-A-Code, is now available as a component in the offerings of some of the nation’s largest electronic medical record (EMR) companies. Medical providers will now have access to the latest version of this application based on Data Harmony, Access Innovations’ patented, award-winning software.
IntegraCoder is a web-based solution combining the technologies of Access Integrity and Find-A-Code. Access Integrity’s engine, which is powered by Data Harmony’s semantic analysis technology, analyzes content in EMRs and provides highly relevant diagnosis and procedure suggestions, while Find-A-Code provides exhaustive coding and revenue cycle/denial management resources. IntegraCoder’s indexing system recognizes key concepts within an EMR and delivers suggested codes for users to select from, which increases accuracy in clinical documentation.
Version 2.0 presents far-reaching improvements to the application:
- An integrated edit capability, allowing providers to get more precise recommendations.
- An ICD-10 readiness tool encompassing documentation and coding nuance.
- Pre-claim code scrub for medical necessity.
- Charge functionality seamlessly generates a claim submission with IntegraCoder.
“It’s exciting to have IntegraCoder version 2.0 in the marketplace,” says John Kuranz, CEO of Access Integrity. “The hard work that has been put in by all members of the team really shows in the product and how smoothly it integrates into the EMR system. IntegraCoder’s encounter note editing and research capabilities and ICD-10 tool set will greatly enhance the end-to-end patient engagement process.”
“The new version of IntegraCoder will give coders and billers the speed, efficiency, and instant access to critical coding data needed to keep up with the changes in medical coding,” explains Find-A-Code CEO LaMont Leavitt, “and adding the capability to seamlessly generate a claim from IntegraCoder’s results is a game changer, especially with the transition from the ICD-9 to ICD-10 code sets later this year.” Leavitt is confident that the integration of the two technologies will fulfill a long-time need in the practice management sector.
Jay Ven Eman, CEO of Access Innovations, the parent company of Access Integrity, remarks, “The latest version of IntegraCoder presents a great opportunity for disruption in the medical practice management sphere. We are very excited to be in this marketplace and expect great things to come from IntegraCoder.”
