Computer Assisted Coding

For over a decade, AMI has been an industry leader in the Computer Assisted Coding and Natural Language Processing space. EMscribe® Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC) was the first commercial product to provide a customized, site specific Inpatient and Outpatient Computer-Assisted ICD10, CPT, & E & M Coding Solution for all patient encounters.

EMscribe® Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC) software generates medical codes directly from clinical documentation using AMI’s innovative Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology. It saves time, improves accuracy, optimizes reimbursement and streamlines the revenue cycle.

A computer-assisted coding system (CACS) is software that analyzes healthcare documents and produces appropriate medical codes for specific phrases and terms within the document.

AMI was the first Computer Assisted Coding software vendor to install in an inpatient setting (2004) providing the benefits of Artificial Intelligent (AI) decision making to streamline workflows and reduce coding time, DNFBs, and increasing “Cash On Hand”
