Wayne Memorial Hospital Selects ezDI for Integrated Computer-assisted Coding (ezCAC) and Clinical Documentation Improvement (ezCDI) Solution

ezDI, Inc., a venture of Mediscribes, Inc., today announced that it will provide Wayne Memorial Hospital with a fully integrated suite of revenue cycle software, including computer-assisted coding (CAC), clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and a compliance module.
ezDI will deliver the solution through a flexible, cloud-based platform that will enable Wayne Memorial physicians to collaborate with Health Information Management, coders and CDI staff; provide high-quality coding and clinical documentation anywhere, anytime; help to reduce documentation delays; improve productivity; streamline workflows and institute a myriad of dashboards for real-time monitoring of the revenue cycle process.

Wayne Memorial Hospital is located in Goldsboro, North Carolina. The hospital was founded in 1896 and is the county’s third-largest employer with over 1,800 employees. The hospital is licensed for 316 beds and is staffed by over 200 physicians. It is a not-for-profit sole community provider.

“When evaluating CAC applications, we found ezCAC to be super easy to use with a user interface that is configured exactly how the system's users would want it," said Phyllis Dreading, RHIT, CMCO, Director of Health Information Management. "It is very obvious that ezDI spent a great deal of time listening to HIM coding and CDI personnel and gathering information as to what revenue cycle professionals need in a CAC/CDI application. This is what we have been asking for in the industry. We are looking forward to implementing ezCAC's advanced technology and assessing it’s flexibility and capability in helping us to meet our current needs for quick turnaround to accurate reimbursement information and increased oversight of the coding process.”

ezDI is providing Wayne Memorial with healthcare informatics products that leverage cutting-edge 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 preprocessing and preparing that data.

The all-in-one workflow solution features computer-assisted-coding (ezCAC), clinical documentation improvement module (ezCDI), a compliance auditing module, analytics tools and dashboards.

ezCAC is built on an award-winning Medical Language Understanding (MLU) engine - ezNLP - and a patent-pending ICD-10 solution, delivering true automation and optimization for accurately assigning healthcare codes. ezCAC simplifies medical coding, increases coder productivity, reduces DNFB and denials and improves revenue cycle management and controls. ezCDI leverages ezNLP and other proprietary solutions to build configurable work lists that prioritize cases with the highest probability for documentation improvement. ezCDI transforms a hospital’s CDI program into an automated, real-time, collaborative and highly communicative CDI model.

"At ezDI, we are pushing the boundaries of the computerization of the coding and CDI work flow by developing state-of the-art solutions that leverage Natural Language Processing (NLP), Semantic Web, Machine Learning and Linguistics," said Neil Shah, Vice President of Product Engineering at ezDI. "We are motivated by the belief that providers and clinical staff must have real-time access to organized clinical data and that access will improve the experience of each patient and maximize reimbursement opportunity."
