ALBUQUERQUE, NM (April 14, 2014)IntegraCoder has been integrated into the Allscripts Wand™ application, IntegraCoder is the state-of-the-art integration of Albuquerque, New Mexico-based Access Integrity’s application of the award-winning Data Harmony software suite and Spanish Fork, Utah-based Find-A-Code’s all-inclusive coding and billing resource libraries.

“Integrating IntegraCoder with the Allscripts Wand iPad application allows providers immediate access to patient summary information so they can quickly drill down to relevant procedure and service codes,” said Access Integrity CEO John Kuranz.  “Within seconds, providers can look at a list of highly relevant codes for diagnoses, procedures, and services, as well as determine whether or not the resulting claim is error free. It will be a game changer for providers.

“The Allscripts practice management platform is the leading clinical software and connectivity solution for physicians”, adds Lamont Leavitt, CEO of Find-A-Code. “Adding our technology to the Allscripts Application Store for their Professional, TouchWorks, and Sunrise EHR solutions will give providers, coders, billers and administrators real-time access to each patient encounter. I am enthusiastic about the combination of our technologies.”

IntegraCoder is a comprehensive library of medical coding datasets combined with a technology that scans EMR text and produces highly relevant coding suggestions, using rule-based indexing software that is able to recognize key terms within the medical record. Codes are suggested based on a number of different algorithms in the patented technology that is the “engine under the hood”. One of these algorithms deals with the proximity of key concept terms to other terms or descriptors. Key terms are highlighted in the EMR text, allowing the user to see immediately where the term is located within the medical record. IntegraCoder is a web-based, user-friendly application that increases coding accuracy and speed, clinical decision support, and overall understanding of the entire patient encounter. IntegraCoder offers solutions to medical providers, coders, billers and healthcare administrators to expedite the transaction process, allowing healthcare organizations to focus on providing high-quality, efficient patient care.
