improvement in coder productivity.

Challenge

ACH is a McKesson Paragon/One Content hospital that was using the 3M encoder, and Navigant CDI software to complete their coding and CDI-related work. Their Discharge Not Final Coded (DNFC) was 7 days and their CMI was 1.2024.

Solution

ACH engaged AGS Health’s natural language processing-based technologies, including computer-assisted coding applications, CAC, along with a fully integrated encoder and AGS Health’s coding compliance software.

"You really don’t know what you are missing until you start implementing a program like CAC and working with a vendor like AGS... The results have been tremendous in terms of return on investment. We have realized a $1.03MM impact on our bottom line, which is more than a 10x return."
