Auburn Community Hospital (ACH) is a not for profit, 99-bed acute care facility serving a population of approximately 80,000. Located southwest of Syracuse, New York.

Challenge

ACH is a McKesson Paragon/OneContent hospital that was using the 3M encoder, and Navigant CDI software to complete their coding and CDI-related work. Their Discharge Not Final Coded (DNFC) was 7 days and their CMI was 1.2024.

Solution

ACH chose to deploy EZDI’s NLP-based technologies, including the computer-assisted coding application, ezCAC, along with a fully integrated encoder, ezEncoder and EZDI’s coding compliance software, ezAssess.
