TruCode Adds Prognosis Innovation Healthcare to Its Roster of EHR Partners for Full Clinical Coding Encoder Integration
ALPHARETTA, GA (December 2, 2014) – TruCode and Prognosis Innovation Healthcare announced today a reseller and full application integration partnership. Trucode Encoder Essentials, the company’s web services solution for clinical coding, will be embedded within the Prognosis Innovation Healthcare’s ChartAccess® EHR and Financial Revenue Cycle Management systems. The full encoder-EHR integration streamlines coding workflows and improves billing accuracy and efficiency for Prognosis Innovation’s hospital, physician practice and clinic customers. The announcement was made jointly by Mike Mulligan, Managing Partner, TruCode, and Steve Everest, CEO, Prognosis Innovation Healthcare.
“The best clinical coding experience results when encoder technology is fully integrated into the end user’s core system,” mentions Mulligan. Complete encoder integration within HIS, EMR or EHR systems gives medical record coders and billers sophisticated code searches, grouping, code edits, clinical coding references, and coding advice at their fingertips. “With an integrated versus interfaced encoder, no time is wasted for medical record coders and no separate contract is required for the vendor, hospital, practice or clinic,” adds Mulligan. Everest concurs.
“We selected TruCode after a long search for an encoder partner who understood our unique market needs and was willing to work with us in a tight integration strategy,” Everest states. “Prognosis’s success is built on our ability to deliver integrated solutions that improve workflow. TruCode’s strategy is the same, making a win-win partnership for our customers.”
The TruCode-Prognosis partnership includes system integration and reseller agreements. For Prognosis customer Vicki Howe, RHIT, Director of HIM at Ness County Hospital in Kansas, the agreement means that “our coders have access to an excellent encoder/grouper with all the coding tools they need at their fingertips with a single point of entry to accommodate both MedGenix and ChartAccess, including references such as; AHA Coding Clinic for ICD-9 and I-10, CPT Assistant, Official Coding Guidelines for ICD-9 and I-10, Coders Desk Reference, as well as others.” “I am looking forward to the dynamics that TruCode and Prognosis Innovative Healthcare will provide to us,” she concludes.
