Computer-assisted coding and natural language processing
Advancing healthcare together
Since 2009, 3M and CodeRyte have worked together to bring its computer-assisted coding technology to more than 60 3M Health Information Systems clients. Building upon that experience in working and collaborating together, the 3M acquisition of CodeRyte, brings many exciting opportunities for innovation in the application of NLP to health care.
Delivering fast, accurate and complete coding
CodeRyte has been able to help physicians and coders deliver fast, accurate and complete coding information immediately through its advanced NLP technology. Its products include CodeAssist, CodeComplete and DataScout.
“This acquisition allows us to apply CodeRyte’s leading edge NLP technology to our new 3M 360 Encompass System,” said Jon T. Lindekugel, vice president and general manager, 3M Health Information Systems. “We believe CodeRyte’s powerful NLP engine combined with 3M’s deep expertise in coding, reimbursement and patient classification will foster further innovation in the application of NLP.”
A breakthrough answer to challenges
The 3M 360 Encompass System addresses the inefficiencies of multiple clinical documentation and coding workflows, offering a breakthrough answer to the documentation and coding challenges of health care reform, new quality reporting requirements, and ICD-10. 3M is an international leader in coding and patient classification systems with more than 5,000 hospitals worldwide using 3M coding solutions to code and group patient date for decision support, quality measurement, and reimbursement.
“CodeRyte’s mission, to improve individual and population health by making the language of healthcare meaningful, and our 250 fantastic clients will be best served by this combination,” said Andrew Kapit, chief executive officer, CodeRyte. “Together, we can create change at the pace the nation needs.”
