Access Innovations, under subsidiary Access Integrity, and Find-A-Code are pleased to announce that they are ready to launch eMDoc™, an all-new evaluation and management (E&M) medical coding tool through IntegraCoder, their combined medical record analysis system. Providers using IntegraCoder in one of their integrated electronic health record (EHR) companies will automatically have access to eMDoc, their robust evaluation and management solution.
eMDoc leverages Access Innovations’ patented Data Harmony software and Find-A-Code’s exhaustive medical coding datasets farther than ever before, pushing them to allow providers the ability to record evaluation and management data into an EHR at any time during the patient encounter. Like IntegraCoder, eMDoc automatically reads the EHR for context regarding evaluation and management, then returns a scorecard with E&M coding suggestions. As providers proceed through encounters, they will continuously receive an ongoing account of their level of service to the patient.
“We’ve been hearing the pain in the industry about E&M for a long time,” says John Kuranz, CEO of Access Integrity. “E&M calculation is frustrating for even the most experienced medical billers and coders and I’m thrilled with the hard work put in by our teams to allow IntegraCoder the ability to tackle this problem.”
“For too long, developers have tried and failed to solve the E&M problem, but the combined effort to bring eMDoc to the table has been outstanding,” explains Find-A-Code CEO LaMont Leavitt, “adding the capability to score an encounter while the encounter is still happening is a genuine breakthrough in the billing and coding space. An E&M product designed specifically for providers fills a much needed hole in the industry.”
IntegraCoder is a web-based solution combining the technologies of Access Integrity and Find-A-Code. Access Integrity’s engine 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.
