Richmond University Medical Center Streamlines Coding / Clinical Documentation with ezDI's Cloud-based Solution

Richmond University Medical Center (RUMC) will implement an integrated suite of revenue cycle software from ezDI, Inc., a venture of Mediscribes, Inc.


In order to reduce documentation delays and provide real-time revenue monitoring, Richmond University Medical Center (RUMC) will implement an integrated suite of revenue cycle software from ezDI, Inc., a venture of Mediscribes, Inc. Delivered through a cloud-based platform, the ezDI software enables RUMC physicians to collaborate from anywhere at anytime with others in healthcare information management, coders and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) staff. ezDI’s all-in-one workflow solution features computer-assisted coding for coders (ezCAC) and the clinical documentation improvement specialists (CDS). ezDI also delivers a compliance auditing module, analytics tools and dashboards as a part of the total solution.

“When compared with other CAC applications, we found ezCAC extremely easy to use with a user interface configured exactly how our system's users would want," said Robert Ren, Vice President for Revenue Cycle and Managed Care, RUMC. "It’s obvious that ezDI spent a great deal of time listening to HIM, coding and CDI professionals to find out what revenue cycle professionals need in a CAC/CDI application. It’s precisely what we’ve been asking for. We were blown away by ezCAC's advanced technology and the flexibility within the platform. It gives our team incredibly fast and accurate reimbursement information and increases oversight of the coding process.”

ezDI’s healthcare informatics products leverage technologies such as Natural Language Processing, Semantic Web, and high-performance computing to identify patients at risk, patterns in diseases and treatment outcomes without having to spend hours pre-processing and preparing that data.

"Our enterprise solution is the only one of its kind in the market today. We have taken Natural Language Processing (NLP) and added several new key technologies that abstract and make sense of clinical sentence structure in a much more granular fashion. To accomplish this, we focused heavily on medical ontology using semantic web to identify and now constantly maintain the millions of medical relationships and population health concepts contained within ezDI. We built ezDI's technical infrastructure using tomorrow's technologies today and our award-winning results place ezNLP as the #1 Medical Language Understanding (MLU) engine and platform in the industry. We are pushing the boundaries of healthcare computerization with an easy-to-use and affordable CAC/CDI system and we will be delivering a suite of products that focus on predictive analytics, population health initiatives and disease prevention," said Terry Ciesla, Executive Vice President for ezDI.

ezCAC is built on an award-winning Medical Language Understanding (MLU) engine - ezNLP - and a patent-pending ICD-10 solution, and delivers automation and optimization for assigning healthcare codes. ezCDI leverages ezNLP and other proprietary solutions to build configurable work lists that prioritize cases with the highest probability for documentation improvement. ezCDI transforms hospital’s CDI program into an automated, real-time, collaborative and highly communicative CDI model.

Auburn Community Hospital (ACH) is a not-for-profit, 99-bed acute care facility serving a population of approximately 80,000.

Located southwest of Syracuse, New York, ACH is an Iroquois Health Alliance (IHA) member hospital and is the sole provider of acute and general hospital services in Cayuga County and the surrounding areas, located in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York.

Founded in 1878 by a group of community-minded individuals who recognized the growing health care needs of Auburn and Cayuga County, the original 13-bed hospital was called Auburn City Hospital, located at the current site on Lansing Street.

"Auburn Community Hospital is excited to have joined forces with ezDI in a Flagship partner agreement for ezDI's Computer-assisted Coding (CAC) solution," said Amy Sanderson-DeRose, RHIA, Privacy Officer & Director for Health Information Management at Auburn Community Hospital. "With ICD-10 just around the corner, we anticipate that the addition of CAC will help us through the October 1st transition by giving us a fully integrated CAC, encoder, and analyticspackage/product which will support our Coding staff more than any other product on the market. We anticipate that ezDI will help us by eliminating backlogs and improve Coder productivity almost immediately. Beyond that, we will expect to see denials management improvement along with decreases in turn-around-time and A/R days."

Ms. Sanderson DeRose further said of ezCAC that, "The Natural Language Processing engine was the most innovative and impressive of its kind. This engine reads the medical record’s clinical documentation and understands the terminology. That alone is quite impressive, but ezDI seems to takes it a step further. This technology automates abstraction and assigns the ICD-9/ ICD-10 diagnostic and procedure codes. This is the technology we feel is absolutely necessary to support the Coders and positively impact our revenue cycle along with the endless possibilities of improvement in the areas of CDI, Quality, and to eventually, positively impact patient care."

We are delighted to partner with ezDI and look forward to work with them on the cutting edge of technology! I haven’t been this excited about a product in a long time!"

The future of the Semantic Web: cultural heritage and privacy

By Dr. Heather Packer, Research fellow, the University of Southampton.
After attending both the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) and the Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST), I considered what this meant for research and development in this exciting area.

Some of the most interesting work presented at ISWC and JIST were in the areas of cultural heritage, such as the recording of personal stories, and integrating historic maps with new timelines. This was highlighted in the opening keynote at JIST, which was given by Eero Hyvönen of Aalto University in Finland, presenting its work on using Semantic Web technologies to preserve Finnish cultural heritage.

These included the preservation of ancient shoemaking methods, through the digitisation and documentation using Semantic Web metadata with multimedia, interviews and written sources. Secondly, the complete transcription of the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala, into a Semantic narrative, and the process by which topics are linked from their own ontology portal, so that topical connections in the Kalevala narrative can be made with other Finnish cultural heritage work.

Aalto University's work shows that Semantic Web technologies, such as its Cultural Sampo ontology portal, allow cultural heritage artefacts and narratives from multiple sources to be brought together and automatically cross-referenced. Examples were shown where the cross-linking between sources has already benefitted researchers, with technical barriers easily overcome.

In the future, I am aiming to work towards a Semantic Web which will allow narratives to share workflows and stories about companies, as opposed to more traditional methods like statistics calculated from databases. These narratives can be used to explain things based on people's past experiences and their interests (taken from their actions on the web), to make them both more useful and engaging.

One problem, however, arises from where is it acceptable to gather and use data. Many of the people I have spoken to in academia and industry have said that information taken from their emails is too intrusive and people as a whole are unwilling to use such a system. However, people are more willing to adopt systems that use information from social networks where they can freely censor information about themselves.

Yet in my experience the most useful information is often to be found precisely in private online places such as email and calendars. In the future I would like the Semantic Web to allow me to attend a conference in another country, and automatically (with optional and minimal input) handle my flights, hotels, conference registrations and restaurant recommendations based on preferences that I had made in the past, such as price range and hotel recommendations and amenities.

In addition to academic research, the Semantic Web also has applications for business and handling personal data. The latter, in particular, has recently seen its research spurred on by a number of initiatives, including the midata initiative from the UK government's Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). The initiative, which is due to start in 2013, mandates that companies must supply data they hold about a person back to that person in a machine readable format, and under an open licence.

The Semantic Web provides an obvious framework for enabling this at low cost to businesses - there are already numerous examples of marking up personal data under appropriate licenses such as the Open Government license used on data.gov.uk. Semantic Web technologies would therefore enable businesses to comply with new data protection legislation in a cost-effective manner. End-users that receive their data will also benefit, because there are numerous analysis, visualisation and storage mechanisms which already work with Semantic Web data.

The need for storing, managing, using and sharing personal data continues to grow. In response, numerous business startups which focus on providing such services have been launched. Meanwhile groups such as the W3C Read Write Web community group are discussing approaches to using Semantic Web techniques for publishing, receiving and sharing private data. For users this means that it will be easier to make their data work for them, including sites that use your data to help you save money, such as Bill Monitor, which analyses your mobile phone bill to find out how much you can save by getting a new phone contract. It is very likely that similar services will exist in the future for other utilities, such as electricity, gas, and broadband.

The future of the Semantic Web is making it easier to access increasingly richer presentations of our history and heritage, and also publish, and thus increase the amount of cultural heritage material being preserved and made available online. The future of personal data is also one which is expanding rapidly, towards the goal of helping people to make more financially beneficial purchases, and to better manage their private data.

Determining the right tool for your transcription needs

As we move into the 21st century, there are probably two most important tools that reign in the medical transcription domain. They are digital recorder and telephone dictation. With times this debate has heightened as in which of these two tools is the most efficient for transcription needs. Now you might be wondering; why I have changed my focus from medical transcriptionists to tools that medical practitioners use for recording their interaction with the patient. As I have already discussed in my previous blogs it has become mandatory for medical practitioners to record their patient records for getting insurance from the insurance companies. Now this is a very crucial component wherein these two tools play a very important role.

Now let me start off with different options that medical practitioners had in the past. The old Dictaphone machines were quite large and stationary. With times; handheld tape recorders were used which were followed by micro and mini-cassette tape recorders. However, it was found that there were lot of limitations in these tools. One of the prime being portable caused the challenge of being lost or misplaced easily. The other limitation was that they needed to be connected with a PC to download the files being transcribed. Now it is not that easy to download the files popping out of a tape, putting in a new one and continue recording. Hence; there was a need to introduce a digital recorder with a removable memory card and a memory card attached to your PC. This was a huge change.

Today medical practitioners have two options as discussed earlier. Both these options require several factors for optimal usage – low ambient or background noise, clear dictation and knowledge of how to use them.

Now digital recorders have the various features of a tape recorder like slide switches for pausing, rewinding and fast forwarding. Less expensive ones have buttons instead of slide switches and it takes quite some time to use them effectively. Handheld recorders are portable that can be carried anywhere which is a great advantage. As the medical practitioner can dictate the notes on the go while examining the patient. But the one limitation of the digital recorders is that the dictation needs to be downloaded on a PC – either through USB cable or a removable storage disk reader and upload it to the transcriptionist’s computer. There are different formats that are provided by the manufacturers but most of them are highly compressed and easily downloaded by the transcriptionist.

On the other hand; telephone dictation systems can be operated only through telephone and that too a landline phone rather than mobile phones. This is done to ensure high quality of recorded voice.  Since they are not portable; medical practitioners cannot use them while examining the patients.  The beauty of this recording system is that once the file is recorded it is automatically saved. It does not require to be uploaded to computer; and then sent to the transcriptionist. The entire file movement is done through the dictation system and is done securely. There is no time delay in uploading the files as they are automatically saved with the system.

Ultimately it is the choice of the medical practitioner to decide on the preferably method for dictation. But medical practitioners who have become habituated to tape recorders now use digital recorders as they are similar in dictation style. Others who have learned dictating through hospital-based telephone use telephone-based dictation system. Then there are others who make their decision based on the system which is more automated. Now in this case telephone dictation system win the race as they can be automatically saved; thereby providing embedded security and queue up the dictation by transcription as soon as the medical practitioner finishes dictating.

ICD-10-CM Coding for Latrogenic Blood Vessel Injuries

Some of the more common causes of blood vessel injury include gunshot wounds, stab wounds, blunt trauma (including blunt trauma with fracture or dislocation) and iatrogenic injuries. With more procedures being performed using intravascular techniques of late, the number of iatrogenic injuries to blood vessels has increased. Understanding the differences between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM coding for blood vessel injuries occurring as a complication of a surgical procedure will help with correct code assignment when ICD-10-CM is implemented.

In ICD-9-CM, codes for iatrogenic injuries of blood vessels are found in Chapter 17, Injury and Poisoning. An injury to a blood vessel complicating a surgical procedure is reported with one of three nonspecific codes, as follows:


998.11 Hemorrhage complicating a procedure; 998.12 Hematoma complicating a procedure; and 998.2 Accidental puncture or laceration during a procedure.
It should be noted that no distinction is made in ICD-9-CM for intra-operative or postoperative hemorrhage or hematoma.

In ICD-10-CM, codes for intra-operative and post-procedural blood vessel injuries are found in Chapter 9, Diseases of the Circulatory System. ICD-10-CM classifies body system-specific, intra-operative and post-procedural complications within each body system chapter, rather than in Chapter 19 (Injury, Poisoning and Certain Other Consequences of External Causes Medical Transcription).

While ICD-10 codes for intra-operative and post-procedural complications affecting blood vessels are not specific to the site of the injury, they are specific to the body system affected, which in the case of blood vessel injuries is the circulatory system. Codes are also specific to the type of injury – hemorrhage and hematoma or puncture and laceration. Hemorrhage and hematoma codes are specific to whether the complication occurs during a surgical procedure or postoperatively, and these codes are also specific to some types of procedures (including cardiac catheterization, cardiac bypass, other circulatory system procedure or other procedure). Puncture and laceration codes are specific to whether the blood vessel injury occurred during a circulatory system procedure or during a procedure being performed on another body system.

For intra-operative hemorrhage and hematoma of a blood vessel or other circulatory system organs or structures, the following codes apply:

  • I97.410 – Use when the hemorrhage or hematoma complicates a cardiac catheterization procedure.
  • I97.411 – Use when the hemorrhage or hematoma complicates a cardiac bypass procedure.
  • I97.418 – Use when the hemorrhage or hematoma complicates another circulatory system procedure.
  • I97.42 – Use when the hemorrhage or hematoma complicates a procedure on a body system other than the circulatory system.

For post-procedural hemorrhage and hematoma of a blood vessel or other circulatory system organs or structures, the following codes apply:

  • I97.610 – Use when the hemorrhage or hematoma complicates a cardiac catheterization procedure.
  • I97.611 – Use when the hemorrhage or hematoma complicates a cardiac bypass procedure.
  • I97.618 – Use when the hemorrhage or hematoma complicates another circulatory system procedure.
  • I97.62 – Use when the hemorrhage or hematoma complicates a procedure on a body system other than the circulatory system.

For accidental puncture and laceration of a blood vessel or other circulatory system organ or structure, the following codes apply:

  • I97.51 – Use when the accidental puncture or laceration occurs during a circulatory system procedure.
  • I97.52 – Use when the accidental puncture or laceration occurs during a procedure on another body system.
