WAKEFIELD, R.I. (July 22, 2015)—ChartWise Medical Systems Inc. announced the integration of its new ICD-10-PCS Query Wizard technology into the ChartWise 2.0 software solution. Designed to take the complexity out of procedure coding, ChartWise’s Query Wizard functionality is the only tool on the market capable of assisting in the clarification of physician procedure codes. The result is a customized query built specifically to gather the additional information and specificity needed from the physician to accurately complete the coding.
The ChartWise 2.0 Query Wizard functionality aids coders and healthcare professionals by providing guidance and assistance as they input the seven-character procedural coding system (PCS) formula for a given procedure performed by a physician. If the user has incomplete data—as is often the case—the Query Wizard allows them to input the characters they have. Based on that information, the tool will guide the user to select the correct next character or characters through advanced algorithms built into the software, then creates the corresponding query to the physician to obtain the necessary clarification and documentation.
“The nomenclature for our PCS in the US is not set up in medical terms,” said Dr. Jon Elion, founder and CEO of ChartWise Medical Systems. “Health care professionals often run into trouble accurately translating the medical terminology they are accustomed to using into the classification language used for coding. The Query Wizard in the ChartWise 2.0 software helps bridge that gap with intuitive predictive analytics technology that assists in determining the correct code for a procedure. The goal is to achieve completeness and accuracy with each code so as to ensure appropriate nomenclature selection that will result in correct reimbursement.”
ChartWise 2.0 was released in 2014 by ChartWise Medical Systems as a follow up to its ChartWise software product. New tools such as the Query Wizard have helped to keep ChartWise 2.0 on the cutting edge of CACDI technology as the ICD-10 conversion approaches in October.
