RightFax and OCR for Actionable Healthcare Data

Combining the power of OCR and RightFax fax server technology provides almost real-time healthcare data necessary for optimization of healthcare practice management. A recent article on EHRIntelligence.com illustrated the need for actionable real-time data in healthcare. The lack of actionable real time data has left healthcare organizations unable to meet goals as analysis of data is often outdated and leaves organization unable to meet goals and remain competitive. According to David Susskind, VP of Hospitalist Operations at Hospital Physician Partners: “[a] cutting-edge practice management and charge capture tool” were necessary to address the introduction of real time data. ABBYY OCR data capture provides organizations with the tools necessary to improve the effectiveness of care and patient management.

OCR and RightFax for improved healthcare data

OCR for ICD-10 Readiness

With a little less than a year until ICD-10 standards take effect, healthcare organizations are scrambling to get processes set. Large healthcare organizations are already allocating employees and resources to address the new coding standards. However, small to medium sized providers are finding it difficult to address the new standards sufficiently. With limited resources, small to medium sized healthcare organizations should turn to ABBYY OCR data capture solutions to address impending ICD-10 standards.

OCR data capture provides added validation for ICD-10

OCR data capture technology drastically improves ICD-10 coding processes. ICD-10 coding is a very time consuming, manual process that is prone to user errors. By leveraging best-in-class OCR data capture, organizations can render the process more accurate and efficient by adding a level of automated data validation. Suppose an ICD-coder reads a patient symptom as having a high-fever and incorrectly codes for the symptom. Rather than receive penalties associated with mishandled coding or the incur the effects on claims, ABBYY FlexiCapture data capture solution can review the symptoms and the code associated with that symptom for accuracy. If the symptom and the code entered do not match the appropriate standard, the OCR solution will prompt an operator to review.

Such a solution provides small to medium healthcare organizations with a cost-effective solution to help transition to ICD-10 standards. By rendering the process more accurate, OCR technology provides organizations with a strategy to avoid the risks inherent in incorrect application of codes.
