Is your risk adjustment program capturing the whole truth?
Traditional coding approaches don’t fully capture the underlying risk in a MA population. In a groundbreaking study, coders using Apixio’s HCC Identifier application found 20% more new supported HCC codes than expert coders working without technology assistance in a review of 284,000 MA member charts. In addition to the greater accuracy, coders using the HCC Identifier application were able to code 25 charts per hour (including QA), which is 4 to 6 times faster than traditional coding methods.
Give your organization the best of both worlds by providing your risk adjustment coding team the augmented intelligence difference from Apixio.
Take control of your risk adjustment program
Give your team the insights they need to be their best. With HCC Identifier, you can track coder progress and decision-making, provide real-time feedback, and uncover opportunities for training and education. The project dashboards and multi-layered quality assurance provide instant insights into coder decisions and supports a sophisticated oversight and rebuttal process with less time and effort.
Acquire and use your patient data no matter how it’s stored. InfoStream by Apixio can successfully retrieve and mine data in:
- Electronic health records (e.g. Epic, Cerner, Allscripts)
- PDFs or TIFF images
- Medical and prescription claims
- Demographic, eligibility, and provider files
- And more
HCC Identifier’s workflows are configurable for initial coding and quality assurance, giving you complete control of your coding projects. Our platform also includes risk adjustment coding guidelines, an ICD recommendation engine, dynamic provider search, and diagnosis history, all just a click away.
Facilitate coder training and improve project management with robust coder management tools and metrics.
Supervisors and senior coders can craft QA workflows that ensure accurate coder decisions and support a robust rebuttal process. Each coder decision can be reviewed along with the supporting evidence. This is the most complete quality assurance available in a risk adjustment coding application.
The most trusted risk adjustment coding technology available
Apixio’s technology is trusted nationwide by MA plans and large provider groups. We’ve conducted a number of large studies of our machine learning technology and repeatedly demonstrated that coders have superior accuracy and greater productivity with our application compared with coders using traditional coding methods. With over 11 million charts analyzed to date, we’re helping to improve risk adjustment programs and make a difference in the way healthcare is delivered across the country.
HCC Identifier is available as an application to support your in-house coding team, or as a service that combines the power of our AI platform combined with world-class coders who use your guidelines to achieve optimal results.
By using Apixio, we’re improving our auditing bandwidth and enhancing the ability of our coders to focus on other chart audits and other projects that we couldn’t do before.
In the past we relied on manual review of our charts. This meant lost manpower and physician time in tedious processes.
Implementing HCC Identifier has allowed us to mine EHR and scanned chart data for valid, risk adjusting conditions with improved transparency and efficiency.
The coding team was wonderful to work with, and incorporated our specific coding guidelines when working on our project. When they noticed a trend in what we were rejecting, they shared a Coding Clinic we were unaware of for clarification on how to code the scenarios.
