LifeCare Hospitals in the US state of Texas will install Meta Health Technology’s abstracting/coding and clinical documentation improvement software.

The programme automates critical functions, including deficiency management, release of information, electronic signature, electronic medical record, reporting and compliance, as well as department management.

Hospitals can use Meta’s software suite with the ICD-9 coding system and continue working when the new ICD-10 codes go into effect.

Meta Health Technology president and CEO Eli Nahmias said: "Our integrated solution provides a complete picture of the process, from concurrent chart review all the way through to the final bill."

The ICD-10-ready software suite is a web-based solution, which includes three core components: eAbstract, ePhysicianQuery and eCDI.

eAbstract can streamline chart abstracting and coding and offer standard, ad hoc and custom reporting tools.

ePhysicianQuery, which automates physician query process and improves documentation, will integrate into abstracting/coding workflow, in addition to measuring physician response rate and revenue impact.

And eCDI will automate the clinical documentation improvement process, electronically track and manage daily work assignments and communicate effectively with physicians through a built-in query tool.

Meta Health Operations VP Barbara Hinkle-Azzara added: "Our software makes it easier for physicians to respond promptly and consistently, because all their queries are in the same format regardless of whether they are sent by CDI or by HIM."
