With the growing adoption of electronic medical records, hospitals in the Asia-Pacific region are now seeking computer-assisted coding (CAC) solutions that leverage their existing platforms to improve productivity.
The shift away from paper-based to electronic data capture provides an opportunity to use new technology to automate not only the assignment of codes, but also bring together the many separate and disparate processes of coding and CDI workflows overall.
Experience in the US shows that implementing CAC technology solutions not only improves productivity and coding accuracy, it also enables hospitals to improve quality metrics while reducing the need for outsourcing. In turn, these solutions have a positive impact on hospital reimbursement.
Although it’s early days for CAC technology in the Asia-Pacific region, results from the US provide confidence that hospitals will see a significant return on their investment for many years to come.
In this white paper you will learn
- How constantly changing guidelines are driving the need for automation of clinical coding.
- How CAC technology improves not only coding accuracy and productivity, but also quality and financial success.
- Why hospitals in Asia-Pacific can be confident they will see a significant return on their CAC investment.
