Organizations join forces to help hospitals prepare for the challenges of ICD-10
CONDORD, OH and HUNTINGDON VALLEY, PA – Dolbey, a leader in dictation, transcription, speech recognition and coding solutions for healthcare, and Alpha Systems, a premier provider of electronic patient chart management solutions, announced a strategic alliance partnership to integrate Alpha System’s data and document services and Dolbey’s Fusion Suite™.
Patient charts are widely unstructured documents that require the manual processes that make up the present coding and billing practices in healthcare. These processes are often paper intensive, subject to error, time-consuming, costly but vitally important. As the burden of coding increases through patient volumes and regulatory impacts, the declining availability of trained coding specialists will continue to present even greater challenges in maintaining a healthy revenue cycle. Dolbey and Alpha are leveraging their respective strengths to deliver a range of solutions that have a fast, direct impact on your revenue cycle and clinical document initiatives.
Fusion CAC™ is a Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC) solution that is revolutionizing the coding process by increasing productivity and automation. Using Natural Language Processing (NLP) in combination with proprietary and patent pending algorithmic data abstraction, Fusion CAC is fast, consistent and unique in the industry. Fusion CAC is instrumental in both inpatient and departmental settings.
“Our strategic partnership with Dolbey will enable us to enhance our product offerings that are proven to deliver greater efficiencies within the revenue cycle. With the increased pressures on coding and clinical documentation, we believe Computer Assisted Coding is a critical tool for meeting the challenges of ICD-10 compliance” said Brett Griffith, President of Alpha Systems. “In addition to representing Dolbey’s Fusion product, we are leveraging our 37 years of experience with data and document management solutions with the integration of CAC technology.”
Alpha Systems delivers innovative healthcare data and document management solutions – including data conversion, document scanning, indexing and flexible methods of information retrieval that improve financial outcomes by bringing an end to information bottlenecks. Alpha’s solutions address the full lifecycle of patient information, from pre-registration and clinical documentation to coding and billing, to ensure accurate and timely delivery of information throughout the enterprise.
“We’ve found a great partner in Alpha Systems,” says Chris Casto, Vice-President of Dolbey Systems. “The integration and development between our companies and products helps eliminate costs from third parties and condenses a project timeline. With Alpha and Dolbey, hospitals that are planning to implement CAC ahead of ICD-10 will get a better solution while saving time and money”.
