HCPro, an acknowledged industry authority in healthcare compliance, education, training and consulting for over 30 years, and Artifact Health, who provides the first and only mobile platform that streamlines the physician query process, announced today that Johns Hopkins Medicine selected the ACDIS comprehensive library of compliant clinical documentation improvement (CDI) physician query templates from HCPro to use within Artifact Health's mobile platform.
Four years ago, Artifact Health announced its collaboration with Johns Hopkins Medicine to bring to market Artifact's innovative, cloud-based mobile application for physicians that helps CDI specialists and medical coders capture a more complete picture of a patient's health.
"We are privileged to drive continued collaborations at Johns Hopkins Medicine by introducing the ACDIS query template library within the Artifact platform," said Marisa MacClary, Co-founder and CEO of Artifact Health. "Johns Hopkins has shown significant improvements in provider satisfaction and coding accuracy with Artifact. With the addition of the ACDIS compliant template library, Johns Hopkins can remove the burden of maintaining CDI and coding query templates and continue to ensure high-quality, comprehensive clinical documentation."
HCPro's ACDIS physician query template library was built by a team of renowned CDI educators who applied their substantial clinical and coding experience to its design. The library provides compliance and process guidance so healthcare facilities can better capture the true complexity of their patient population and serves as a key resource continuously addressing critical areas of query practice including:
- ICD-10-CM/PCS coding classifications
- DRG groupings
- MCC/CC diagnoses
- Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs)
- Severity of illness/risk of mortality
- And more
"HCPro is extremely proud to collaborate with the clinical documentation improvement, coding and physician leadership at Johns Hopkins Medicine to provide physician query templates written by ACDIS experts," said HCPro's Chief Product Officer, David Cella. "Our partnership with Artifact Health gives hospitals an innovative approach to acquire a compliant, current and maintenance-free query template library."
