Iasis Healthcare, which operates 16 healthcare facilities across six states, has selected QuadraMed's coding, compliance and reporting technologies to improve coding practices and transition to the ICD-10 code sets in 2013.
QuadraMed, a Reston, Va.-based health IT company, is planning to implement Quantim Coding in Iasis facilities within the next 30 days. Quantim Compliance, Ad Hoc Report Writer and the ICD-10 Simulator tools will be implemented in all facilities by the end of this year.
QuadraMed's ICD-10 Simulator enables hospital coders to learn and practice ICD-10 coding in a live production environment, QuadraMed stated. According to the company, the structure of Quantim's coding tool will help the Franklin, Tenn.-based Iasis staff to manage the increase in the number of codes for coding and billing purposes when ICD-10 becomes mandatory on October 1, 2013.
The Quantim ICD-10 Coding Simulator, which is remotely hosted, comes with embedded coding guidelines, ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS code books, and GEMs (general equivalence mapping) bi-directional translation capabilities, according to QuadraMed.
