Nuance plans to deliver CLU-powered CAC solutions quickly into the market within Quantim's integrated, web-based platform to support a more efficient transition to ICD-10 and deliver better financial results for customers. These solutions will:
- Bridge the capture of clinical information with natural language processing (NLP)-driven coding and compliance, ultimately shortening the time between patient care and appropriate reimbursement – driving to the industry goal of concurrent coding.
- Streamline clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and support CDI and coding specialists within a single platform to decrease the time spent on physician follow-up when additional specific patient details are needed to properly code the care provided; and
- Integrate Nuance’s CLU technology to aid coders directly by providing them with automated prompts that will assist them in ensuring compliance and adjusting to the increased ICD-10 code base.
