Flexible support for government risk programs
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
With HCC Identifier, you can track coder progress and decision-making, provide real-time feedback, and uncover opportunities for training and education. Project dashboards and multi-layered quality assurance provide instant insights into coder decisions and supports a sophisticated oversight and rebuttal process with much less time and effort.
Comprehensive data acquisition
InfoStream by Apixio can ingest large batches of healthcare documents and extract insights from a wide variety of data types, including:
- Encounter notes from provider EHRs [Epic, Cerner, Allscripts, Athenahealth]
- PDF or TIFF patient charts from your chart retrieval vendor [Episource, Ciox, Optum, Inovalon, Cotiviti, etc.]
- Clinical and pharmacy claims
- Demographic, eligibility, and provider files
- RAPS return files
- And more
Targeted coding opportunity reviews
NLP and machine learning algorithms locate evidence of potential net-new HCCs in patient charts. Coders are pointed to specific pages to review supporting documentation so they can focus their time on high-probability coding opportunities and capture more of the truth with less effort.
Configurable coding & QA workflows
Need a custom routing workflow for assigning charts? Conduct 3 levels of QA to ensure reviewer accuracy? Want to route rejected coding opportunities through an additional blind review to maximize value? You can customize project workflows to align with your organization’s goals and guidelines.
Robust coder management tools
Manage coder assignments, track chart review speed & accuracy, and identify reviewers who need additional education with our flexible application. You can review individual coding and QA decisions with supporting evidence to resolve rebuttals and identify areas for coder training.
The most trusted risk adjustment coding technology available
Apixio’s technology is trusted nationwide by health plans, risk-bearing provider groups, and ACOs. We’ve conducted a number of large studies of our machine learning technology and have repeatedly demonstrated that coders have superior accuracy and greater productivity with our application compared with coders using traditional or other technology-enabled coding methods. With learnings from the over 14 million patient charts analyzed to date, we’ve been able to optimize our results and support risk adjustment teams with timely, reliable, actionable insights.
