Clinical quality officers have a tough job. They have to change the behavior of people providing care in their health systems. This means doing everything they can to remove the barriers that keep healthcare professionals from providing the best care possible.
Our team was so energized by the StartUp Health showcase hosted by athenahealth in SF this past Tuesday evening. We have never been surrounded by so many like-minded individuals who are on the same shared mission to transform healthcare. We were blown away by every one of the 33 companies who pitched their startups that we didn’t even feel the pressure of pitching Inferscience in under a minute!
As many of us know in the healthcare community, clinical decision support (CDS) functionality is a meaningful use (MU) requirement for EHRs. I suppose the goal of the authors of this requirement is to enable physicians to provide quality care by following established care guidelines for appropriate screening, monitoring, etc.
What should Allscripts users know about Infera?
The PAMA (Protecting Access to Medicare Act 2014) law signed by president Obama and passed in April 2014, mandates that physicians consult appropriate use criteria (AUC) before ordering advanced imaging tests. While originally intended for implementation on January 1, 2017, Medicare has postponed the implementation for now, but given the spiraling costs of healthcare, we can be certain that sooner or later providers will need to show that appropriate use criteria are met for advanced imaging tests.
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.
