Baystate Health, a Springfield, Massachusetts-based not-for-profit integrated health system, has tapped Artifact Health, which is providing mobile query solution to advance workflow for its clinicians and accelerate the precise coding of patient records. Artifact Health is a leading innovator in physician-centric clinical documentation improvement (CDI) solutions and now rolled out as part of Baystate Health’s strategy to expand CDI initiatives across its health system.
Artifact Health Co-founder and CEO Marisa MacClary said that “We are proud to partner with Baystate Health to help them grow and scale their CDI program.” According to her, “With Artifact, hospitals and health systems give medical coders a complete record to code accurately the first time, reducing the potential for denials and expensive rebilling.” Previously, the query process was burdensome and time-consuming for physicians, clinical documentation specialists, and medical coders. However, with Artifact Health’s HIPAA-compliant, Cloud-based, mobile query platform, physicians can respond to a query compliantly in a matter of seconds with as few as three taps on their Smartphone.
According to the report, Query activity is automatically tracked and reported, in spite of manually recorded by clinical documentation improvement specialists and coders, and available in real-time dashboards and reports. Artifact drives advancements in the healthcare centers and physician coding accuracy and publicly reported quality measures by connecting physicians with a quicker and easier process. As serving their services throughout western Massachusetts and the Knowledge Corridor Region of Massachusetts and Connecticut, Baystate Health has 4 hospitals, more than 80 medical practices, and 25 reference laboratories.
