Nuance Launches Specialized ICD-10 Training To Help Provider Organizations Prepare While Maintaining Financial Integrity And Physician Productivity

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced Clintegrity 360 | ICD-10 Education Services, a new, role-based education management program that provides healthcare professionals with the targeted ICD-10 guidance they need to fully understand and use new medical diagnosis codes before October 2014. Focusing on the clinical, technical and financial aspects of ICD-10, Nuance’s customized training helps physicians, coders and clinical documentation specialists (CDS) develop the advanced knowledge and skills they need to achieve success and avoid pitfalls in transitioning during the short time before ICD-10 goes into effect.

A recent survey conducted by the Medical Group Management Association found that nearly nine out of ten physicians cite that two of their greatest concerns regarding the ICD-10 transition are: changes to clinical documentation, and the loss of clinician productivity. The majority of physicians believe that the complexity of ICD-10 codes will make it much more difficult for them to document and choose the right diagnosis code. Nuance ICD-10 Education Services addresses these concerns by providing the only physician-led education solution with peer-to-peer training, demonstrations, and expert instruction that addresses the ICD-10 documentation requirements by medical specialty, enabling provider organizations to rapidly gain physician buy-in and optimum results.

Nuance’s unique approach teaches physicians salient ICD-10 examples for common cases they face every day, providing improvements in clinical documentation integrity and accuracy of ICD-10 codes, while continuing to focus on patient care.

"Our patients will benefit from the even better quality of care that stems from improving the clinical documentation that tells the patient's story," said Don Bignotti, MD, senior vice president and CMO, CHE Trinity Health. "We've had great success collaborating with Nuance's physician leaders to educate our physicians on the importance of improved accuracy of documentation within the new world of ICD-10."

“Educating physicians and arming them with the knowledge and tools to improve and streamline clinical documentation has become a focal point for healthcare institutions,” explains Dr. Paul Weygandt, M.D. vice president of physician services at Nuance. “They are realizing that long-term viability depends on their physicians’ ICD-10 knowledge and ability to leverage technology to provide quality, cost-effective patient care.”
