Companies to combine software and consulting to provide integrated clinical documentation improvement approach for healthcare facilities
San Diego, CA – May 21, 2013—Peak Health Solutions, a leading provider of end-to-end health information management services to health plans and healthcare facilities, today announced it has entered into a partnership with ChartWise Medical Systems, an innovative computer-assisted clinical documentation improvement (CACDI) software company.
Through this partnership, Peak’s clinical documentation improvement (CDI) consulting and education program, combined with ChartWise’s industry-leading CDI software will bring a more robust offering to customers of the two organizations. This unique combination of technology and professional services will help healthcare providers improve clinical documentation through an integrated approach.
“We are pleased to be partnering with ChartWise to bring an efficient software product to our CDI consulting customers,” says Justin Schmidt, EVP, Providers, for Peak Health Solutions. “ChartWise provides a robust, best of breed, solution that we are excited to offer healthcare facilities alongside our consulting and education programs.”
Peak’s CDI services begin with a complete assessment of current workflow and an audit of targeted patient population to identify gaps and opportunities. Specialists then provide document guidance for auditors, trainers and physicians. CDI consultants also work with clinical experts to deliver comprehensive peer-to-peer education and improvement programs.
ChartWise:CDI brings web-based, computer-assisted clinical documentation intelligence to providers’ documentation improvement programs. The ChartWise software application provides the tools needed for an efficient and effective program, and complements the programs and education provided by Peak’s consulting services. ChartWise:CDI streamlines the CDI process using innovative built-in expertise to translate clinical terms, labs, and medications into diagnostic terms needed for coding. The technology features a flexible workflow with comprehensive on-demand reporting and data analytics, electronic queries, industry-standard data security, HL7 interfacing, and ICD-10 cross-references.
“We look forward to offering our users Peak’s consulting services to augment their current CDI programs,” says Jon Elion, MD, FACC, President and CEO of ChartWise. “Our customers are often looking for additional consulting and program assistance to complement their ChartWise:CDI software. Peak’s reputation and unique ability in this area make them an ideal partner for this initiative.”
