Artifact Health, which provides the first and only mobile platform that streamlines the physician query process, announced today that LifeBridge Health has selected Artifact's solution to improve workflow for its clinicians and expedite the accurate coding of patient records. Artifact will be rolled out in early spring 2019 starting at Sinai Hospital and Northwest Hospital.
Traditionally, the query process is onerous and time-consuming for physicians, clinical documentation specialists and medical coders. With Artifact Health's HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based, mobile query platform, physicians respond to a query compliantly in seconds with as few as three taps on their smartphone. By engaging physicians with a faster and easier process, Artifact drives improvements in hospital and physician coding accuracy and publicly reported quality measures.
"Our vision is to reduce burden on clinicians and assist hospital revenue cycle teams with simple, convenient technology solutions," said Marisa MacClary, co-founder and CEO of Artifact Health. "With our outstanding track record engaging clinicians in clarifying their clinical documentation for accurate and timely coding and billing, we are excited to work with LifeBridge Health to help them achieve their goal of heightened clinician satisfaction and better performance around this critical revenue cycle workflow."
