Summit Health Accelerates ICD-10 Training With Nuance Clintegrity 360 Computer-Assisted Coding, CDI And Physician Education

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that Summit Health, headquartered in Chambersburg, Pa., has deployed Clintegrity 360™ │ Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC) as well as Clintegrity 360 │ Clinical Document Improvement (CDI) with specialized physician education as part of an ICD-10 readiness strategy that focuses on improved clinical accuracy of documentation from the start. Summit Health is using Nuance’s broad approach to ICD-10 readiness across both its inpatient and outpatient settings, leveraging technology to deliver efficiencies today, while identifying gaps in documentation accuracy and training staff from clinicians to coders on tips and tools they need to be adequately trained before the October 2014 deadline.

“We are using Nuance for computer-assisted coding and clinical documentation improvement, two very important foundations that an organization needs to embrace as part of their ICD-10 strategy,” reports John Lucabaugh, vice president of health information management (HIM), Summit Health. “CAC is a key component of ICD-10 readiness, but what I’m most excited about is the vision of blending CDI and CAC into one workflow and solution for the greatest impact on ICD-10.”

Summit Health, ranked among the top 20 percent of best-performing health systems in the country, is building a solid foundation for clinical accuracy at Summit Health’s Chambersburg and Waynesboro facilities. Summit is using Nuance as its main source for ICD-10 training of all clinical and non-clinical staff using the Nuance educational platform to ensure that all Summit personnel, such as HIM coding, billing and general operational staff, are prepared.

Nuance’s powerful tools can assess individual coder competency, pinpoint areas individuals need to work on the most, and then assign specific lessons to prepare them for ICD-10 in the short months before the regulation takes effect. Additionally, Summit is relying on Nuance’s specialized physician education to prepare all medical staff working in its two hospitals and 28 physician practices for new charting requirements of ICD-10.
