Optum has launched its latest coding technology product, Optum Enterpris CAC. This computer-assisted coding (CAC) platform can help healthcare organizations accelerate their transition to ICD-10, as well as increase productivity and simplify coding and documentation processes.

This interesting bit of information was brought to our attention by Enhanced Online News in their article, “Intelligent Coding Technology from Optum Helps Hospitals Accelerate Transition to New ICD-10 System and Improve Clinical Documentation.“ Medical coding is something that requires specialized expertise and systems tailored to regulatory requirements. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system and specializing in complex coding, tagging, and indexing, provides a range of services that deliver tag integrity. Access Innovations provides training to a client’s staff and then offers quality assurance and validation services that can assist in minimizing the risk of a coding error and identify inappropriately applied tags.

Many widely used tagging systems lack a user-friendly interface and may not implement a rigorous ANSI-compliant coding subsystem. Access Innovations’ solutions are ANSI compliant and implement state-of-the-art technology to speed tagging and reduce errors.
