Introducing New Chart-Reading Software

Premier Pulse     March 2019

Premier Health is pleased to announce the implementation of two new clinical documentation solutions to offer you real-time feedback at the point of care. The benefits to you are:

  • Reduced documentation time
  • Improved documentation accuracy
  • Decreased clinical documentation improvement (CDI) retrospective queries
  • Increased patient safety with resultant decrease in medical liability risk
  • Reduction in payer denials for medical necessity
  • Assists in payer performance profile ratings

These products will use artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) to help drive appropriate level specificity and acuity. They are being rolled out in two phases as described below. Both phases started with employed Hospitalists and APPs, and other providers will be added in the near future. 

Phase 1: Dragon Medical Advisor

  • Launching to Hospitalists/APPs: February 19, 2019
  • Purpose: Leverages AI to suggest diagnosis specificity and acuity to help decrease retrospective CDI queries

Phase 2: Epic Note Reader

  • Launching to Hospitalists/APPs: March 19, 2019
  • Purpose: Leverages AI to take a deeper dive into the EMR to ensure accurate reflection of the severity of illness (SOI) and risk of mortality (ROM)

Health insurance companies continue to monitor physician-specific metrics. This information is public to our patients and affects their provider choice. Accurate and robust documentation in the medical record translates to accurate severity of illness that directly drives provider metrics. Overall, this tool will assist in supporting your clinical practice, advocating for your patient’s financial health, and making a positive impact on provider metrics, and will sustain Premier Health’s commitment to providing quality care to our patients.
