About Inferscience's Founder

With over 12 years of experience working with electronic health records (EHRs), Dr. Sunil Nihalani observed how EHRs are being under-utilized in clinical practices. Moreover, the HCC Coding & risk adjustment coding capabilities have been lacking in the clinician’s workflow. Dr. Nihalani’s vision is an HCC Coding tool solution that integrates with leading EHRs and HIT systems to analyze patient records and claims information to help physicians and coders capture and audit HCC codes within their workflows. With Inferscience’s HCC Assistant, Physicians can document HCC codes and plan of care information in real-time during the patient encounter. Now, one solution enables both payers and providers to succeed in today's value-based care market.
