Halifax Regional Medical Center, a 204-bed acute care hospital in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina has selected ezDI’s computer-assisted coding (ezCAC™) software for its Clinical Document Improvement (ezCDI™) and medical coding needs. Based on ezDI’s proprietary Natural Language Processing (ezNLP™) engine, ezNLP, and a patented ICD-10 solution – ezCAC is an enterprise-level coding solution that combines CDI, Coding, Quality and Compliance Auditing modules as well as complete Encoder integration.
According to Julie Bain, the Director for Health Information Management at Halifax, “We were looking for a fully integrated system for CDI and Coding and a new encoder. After evaluating several systems, ezDI’s ezCAC/ezCDI when combined with their automated Auditing module set the ezDI application apart from other solutions and ezDI seemed liked the perfect fit for our organization.”
ezDI provides best-in-class Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC) using Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology that incorporates computational linguistics and a deep knowledge base for both coding and CDI. ezDI’s suite of solutions delivers end-to-end coding workflow automation. They have automated the entire coding, CDI and audit workflow with user configurable work lists, missing document tracking, inter-departmental collaboration tools and real-time visibility into financial, productivity and quality metrics.
“We are very happy to add Halifax Regional Medical Center as a customer, our second Illucient Purchasing Alliance member,” said Terry Ciesla, Executive Vice President for ezDI.
“We are looking forward to engaging with the Halifax team and bringing simplicity to the complexity found within the coding work flow.”
