SOUTH KINGSTOWN – ChartWise Medical Systems Inc. on Monday announced the release of its new software product, ChartWise 2.0, to streamline clinical documentation for health care providers.
By October 2014, hospitals in the United States are required to switch over from ICD-9 to the revised ICD-10 medical classification and diagnosis coding system. The ChartWise 2.0 computer-assisted clinical documentation software application offers tools to build an efficient and effective clinical documentation improvement program, using built-in functions to translate clinical terms, labs and medications into diagnostic terms for side-by-side ICD-9/ICD-10 dual coding and dual-query capabilities that eliminate duplicate data entry.
By providing both the ICD-9 and ICD-10 coding systems simultaneously, ChartWise 2.0 will help ease the transition between these two coding structures, ChartWise said.
ChartWise 2.0 also includes an advanced user interface that lets users dig deeper into data and view real-time information to manage their clinical documentation improvement programs. DataScan alerts offer built-in functionality to notify case management and quality teams within minutes of an event such as a patient being admitted with a particular diagnosis.
“In developing ChartWise 2.0, we started from the ground up, leveraging the most modern web delivery methods deployed in our Microsoft Azure cloud environment to deliver a solution for hospitals and medical centers that would raise the standard for CDI tools even higher than that set by our Version 1 product,” said Dr. Jon Elion, founder and CEO of ChartWise. “ChartWise 2.0 is a comprehensive software solution with the requisite built-in clinical expertise and computer-assisted clinical documentation improvement capabilities to ensure a timely return on investment.”
According to a news release announcing the availability of ChartWise 2.0, the software is the first program created with built-in clinical intelligence, providing tools to assimilate a complete “diagnostic snapshot.” The software adapts to a paper-based or electronic workflow, fully encrypts patient data, and includes Health Level Seven interfaces to reduce manual data entry and improve data quality.
