DrChrono Teams up with Diagnoss to Help Practices Improve Medical Coding Through Artificial Intelligence Technology

Diagnoss Integration into Mobile EHR Will Help Medical Practices Improve Collections, Reimbursements and Avoid Unnecessary Audits

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DrChrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future, and Diagnoss, the company focused on reducing the administrative burden of medical practices, have partnered together to offer physician practices AI technology to help automate the medical coding process.

Now physician practices using DrChrono’s mobile EHR platform can access Diagnoss’ Artificial Intelligence Engine which reads a doctor’s note, and suggests accurate medical codes and clinical documentation improvement points. These suggestions are autonomously delivered in real time, using artificial intelligence technology, to medical providers as well as coders and billers.

Diagnoss built its natural language processing engine from the ground up to assess doctors’ notes, either as they’re typing them or after they’ve uploaded them into DrChrono, and serves the user with actionable information in real time.

Among the actionable information Diagnoss delivers to DrChrono customers is:

  • E/M Level Meter: provides real-time feedback to users regarding the E/M level of the current patient evaluation;
  • Clinical Documentation Improvement Suggestions: scans the doctor’s notes for missing information relevant to the current patient evaluation;
  • ICD-10 Diagnosis Code Predictions: serves users with predictions as to which diagnosis codes could apply to this note, allowing the user to make a decision and submit those codes directly into DrChrono with one click.

“With new government mandates and greater demands from insurance providers, medical coding has become much more complicated today,” said Abboud Chaballout, Co-Founder at Diagnoss.  “It is riddled with errors, and if a practice makes a mistake, reimbursements are delayed, or they can open themselves up to lengthy audits, all of which can put a practice out of business.  Our AI Engine helps medical providers and coders automatically code much more accurately and streamline the collection process.   We’ve partnered with DrChrono because they are one of the few EHRs that embraces working with technology vendors to bring innovation to medical practices.”

“We are very excited to work with Diagnoss as we believe AI technology will automate tedious and complicated tasks like medical coding so practices can operate much more cost-effectively,” said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-Founder of DrChrono.  “DrChrono is committed to working with technology innovators like Diagnoss who build on our platform to give medical practices the tools they need to run profitable, successful businesses.”
