DENVER--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today that MediMobile has selected its Health Language® Provider Friendly Terminology solution to improve billing accuracy in its enterprise-level mobile charge capture solution. MediMobile’s user base will leverage the terminology solution to reduce physician search time and improve revenue cycle to optimize reimbursement.
“The specificity required for ICD-10 billing presents notable revenue cycle challenges for today’s providers”
The Health Language Provider Friendly Terminology solution was selected to address the complexities of navigating through the high volume of ICD-10 codes. Physicians are challenged with the magnitude of an increase in diagnosis codes to find the most specific diagnosis code. By embedding Health Language content, MediMobile ensures physician documentation is accurate and captures the appropriate billing code, which leads to proper reimbursement.
“The updates MediMobile made with Health Language content advanced our proficiency in capturing the most accurate and specific ICD-10-CM codes without distracting providers from patient care. Our busy trauma surgeons have been very satisfied with the integrated solution and the enhanced workflow to get to the most precise ICD-10 billable diagnosis code,” said Jonathan Dayton, Chief Operating Officer of EmCare, Inc. Surgical Services. “As a result, we’ve accelerated our coding review and claim submission process with the reduction of provider inquiry for diagnosis details, which leads to increased accuracy of our charge capture.”
“As part of MediMobile’s quest to deliver the most advanced technology on the market, our team identified a need to improve physician billing processes,” said Mike Loranger, President of MediMobile. “By leveraging the power of Health Language, we help our customers achieve quick documentation identification of the most accurate diagnosis codes with the confidence that the highest level of reimbursement is realized.”
