AMI is proud to announce that it has developed a new, cost effective coding and reimbursement solution, EMscibe® Encoder. It is the first new Encoder product on the market in nearly a decade. Organizations can purchase this software independently or as part of a full integration with the EMscribe® Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) solution.
The new EMscribe Encoder offers immediate access and analysis to DRG and APC reimbursement data. It fully integrates with AMI’s proprietary Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology which generates medical terms and associates those terms to coding systems such as ICD-10-CM/PCS, CPT-4, and HCPCS. In addition, the EMscribe Encoder allows users to reference and search for all the codes and terms that support the final steps before billing. Once the codes are generated for MS-DRG, APR-DRG, and APC, coders can use the grouper function to include reference materials used by coders and revenue specialists such as AHA coding clinic, CPT assistant, Medicare edits, etc.
The new software is unique from other encoders currently in the market. For example, in addition to searching printed ICD-10, CPT and tabular indexes, EMscribe’s code finder seamlessly searches against AMI’s historically accumulated dictionaries of medical terms, sourced from the actual patient care documentation. The EMscribe Encoder is the only encoding solution on the market that provides a direct medical record view and workflow administrative functionality within the application.
