California-based medical AI startup ASP Technology, which has an R&D office in Taiwan, recently unveiled its latest Clinical Documentation Improvement Tool that helps coders identify incorrectly coded diagnoses or procedures.
DxPrime provides advice to support medical data entry. The CDI tool is based on a machine learning model that has been trained based on a data set of approximately 3.2 billion patient visits.
According to ASP Technology, their latest solution for medical coding uses AI to “efficiently compensate for traditional CDSS and NLP vulnerabilities to find the correct or misdiagnosis”.
Why it matters
Now available in the Digital Health Marketplace Olive Library, DxPrime provides information on missing and incorrectly coded diagnoses or procedures for easy correction of patients’ charts.
With incorrect patient records, ASP claims, patients may be given inappropriate discharge instructions, thus worsening post-discharge care. For providers, this can be a miscalculation of the duration of their patients and incorrect code insurance claims, which can ultimately lead to denial and loss of revenue.
ESOP stressed that errors in diagnosis input are difficult for physicians to avoid due to knowledge gaps in their coding systems. Currently, the 10th Amendment to the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10) includes a base classification of 14,400 diseases, 68,000 under the diagnostic code ICD-10-CM and 87,000 under the procedural code ICPCD-100. There are.
Last month, Ishop’s drug decision support tool RxPrime was launched on OliveHelps, a desktop platform for healthcare IT developers. The solution analyzes inpatient data using patterns from prescriptions and flags potentially inappropriate prescriptions that do not match the patient’s diagnosis.
In other news, ASP has partnered with Taipei Medical University, Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital last year. Research that runs machine learning models on EHR systems in the United States. It has been found that the model, which provides adaptive advice to help doctors complete their prescriptions better, has demonstrated good international transferability.
On the record
Jim Long, CEO of Aesop, said: “Physicians, CDI teams and coders need to spend a lot of time through medical records to diagnose the underlying clinical disease in the vast amount of information. Next, they need to follow one. Search functionality is often not helpful for series, and ICD codes. The whole process is complex, time consuming, and error-prone. “
While using DxPrime, he claimed, doctors were able to detect incorrect code complications. “By helping them input accurate diagnoses, our partners have seen a 5-10% increase in revenue per patient,” Long said.
