What is Computer Assisted Coding (CAC)?

Automatically generates medical codes directly from clinical documentation.

This breakthrough in technology enables M-Scribe to streamline your revenue cycle processing while becoming compliant with increasingly complex payer and quality reporting requirements.

We leveraged our extensive experience as a medical documentation service provider to specialize in converting narrative dictation to clinically relevant medical data. Our Natural Language Processing (NLP)-based technology converts narrative reports and discrete data to contextually structured XML data with SNOMED CT codified concepts. It further enables a range of enhancements for data capture, analytics, reporting and research. A big advantage - SNOMED CT codified concepts are mapped to ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes.

Stand-alone transcription solutions or Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) both produce a rich source of electronic documentation. However, these systems can be difficult to integrate into the coding process and occasionally multifaceted resources are required to complete the job done on daily basis. Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) technology provides a bridge between the documentation in EMRs, availability of resources and healthcare financial systems.

Our Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) solution is deployed using the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model that includes a number of different modules to provide for providing a complete coding workflow solution, including coding review, production monitoring, management reporting, coding automation and auditing.

Data interfaces are used to feed the clinical documentation into our Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) application engine and accept the coded data into the organization’s billing system. With Natural Language Processing (NLP)-based systems, virtually any document format can be used. Standard interface formats such as HL7 or XML can be used to export the clinical documents. 

Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) does not eliminate the need for medical coding professionals. Our in-house certified coders further review codes coming out of the Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) application engine. Application uses an application that displays the clinical documentation side by side along with the medical codes. Coders review and modify the coding in the application and validate against local and national coverage guidelines in real time. 

Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) is widely used for outpatient services. Some of the medical specialties currently use Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) include Radiology, Emergency Medicine, Pathology, Cardiology, Gastroenterology and Pulmonary. 

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the ICD-10 go-live date is October 1, 2015. We look forward to serving you with our new revolutionary coding workflow. Not only will this allow your practice to make the change expected from the transition, but Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) use will make the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 seamless for your practice.

Testimonial

Your service is easy, efficient, fast, and has saved my office thousands of dollars a year by eliminating an in-house transcription department and the cost associated with additional employees, including employee taxes. By eliminating a typist, the office/computer space can now be used for more productive purposes like billing and accounts receivable.
