FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Fully integrated EHR with web based Encoder available through VersaSuite and TruCode Partnership
April 2, 2014 – (Austin, TX) – VersaSuite has partnered with TruCode to integrate their Encoder Essentials into its EHR solution. This new offering will enhance the overall customer experience by providing a seamless integration, which will dramatically improve coding workflow efficiencies for the coding professional. This serves to benefit hospital stakeholders by providing a solution that is managed by one vendor partner at a cost that could be as much as 50% less than traditional encoders. With a known shortage of coding professionals and uncertainty about the ICD-10 transition, this integrated solution offers hospitals a unique opportunity to impact their bottom line in a positive way and minimize the financial impacts ahead.
“We are proud to have formed a partnership with a true leader in the medical coding software space,” says Darius Samani, CEO of VersaSuite. “TruCode’s Encoder Essentials’ intuitive design and powerful capabilities make it a natural fit for VersaSuite’s EHR solution.”
TruCode’s Encoder Essentials is a medical coding software solution that provides medical coding professionals with the Clinical Coding References and tools necessary to navigate medical records quickly and accurately. With Encoder Essentials, coding professionals experience the intuitive functionality and clean presentation of a cloud based solution that works the same way a coder does. All components needed for accurate and effective clinical coding can be embedded into web pages or any other application that can display HTML content for rapid access by coding professionals.
“TruCode is thrilled to partner with VersaSuite for this unique offering. We were the first company to offer complete encoder capabilities through Web Services, becoming the “encoder inside” many EHR, HIS, Computer Assisted Coding (CAC), Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI), and other coding technology companies,” says Tom Golden, Chief Technology Officer of TruCode. “Any system that allows codes to be assigned can benefit from adding TruCode’s Encoder Essentials as an integral part of the solution,” adds Golden.
