The Beginning

Since the day of our inception in 2004, Mediscribes/ezDI has focused on providing the best possible user experience using our dictation applications and transcription services.  In 2010, our leadership team set out to build and lead an effective multi-national team that would consistently deliver solutions to help healthcare organizations adapt to and meet radically changing Health Information Management data requirements and workflow. These unique individuals have made it their business to understand your challenges, and have a passion and talent for, plainly, getting things done.

Building Solutions

In collaboration with Wright State University, the India Institute of Technology and Jawaharlal Nehru University, we have engineered our own world-class, award winning Natural Language Processing (NLP) engine and comprehensive medical knowledge base.  We have subsequently released our computer-assisted coding and clinical documentation improvement products called ezCAC and ezCDI. These solutions are designed to simplify medical coding and clinical documentation improvement, increase productivity, reduce denials, and improve revenue cycle management.  Our intuitive and actionable dashboards & reports are designed to replace expensive coding & compliance management tools to easily measure and visualize success.

Our Mission

ezDI helps hospitals reduce and maintain their DNFB at or below 4 days and eliminates their dependence on costly and outdated coding software by automating and optimizing the entire coding workflow – allowing CDI staff, coders and auditors to work together in perfect unison on a single platform. Some benefits of partnering with ezDI are:


Real-time visibility into organizational, financial and productivity metrics.


A HIPAA compliant cloud solution; No onsite hardware, no VPNs for remote coders, or outsourced coding/audit services - absolutely ZERO IT ongoing support required.
