ATLANTA, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM), provider of the Looking Glass® platform of integrated solutions, technology-enabled services and analytics supporting revenue cycle optimization for healthcare enterprises, today announced the general availability of its new Looking Glass® eValuator™ coding audit technology. The Company plans to introduce the new solution at the HIMSS national trade show in Orlando, Florida. Streamline Health combined its capabilities in software development with the platform and coding expertise obtained through its acquisition of Opportune IT in 2016 to create eValuator. The Company has actively invested in this technology to make it market ready for an official launch at HIMSS.
The Looking Glass eValuator platform can help healthcare providers identify both compliance risks and opportunities across their enterprise. Looking Glass eValuator is a cloud-based solution that provides real-time insight, advice and rationale to guide coders on potential changes in coding and/or clinical documentation. The solution uses proprietary algorithms, developed from decades of auditing experience, that identify common (and commonly overlooked) patterns in the chart. Looking Glass eValuator algorithms intelligently analyze, score and rank every chart in real time, considering both the likelihood of DRG validity and the potential financial impact of coding and/or clinical documentation errors.
Looking Glass eValuator is based on more than 750 rules, providing a comprehensive review of each case to improve a coder's efficiency and accuracy, and help the provider optimize revenue and mitigate risk across the enterprise. The technology can be leveraged both before or after the billing cycle. For pre-bill auditing, eValuator enables providers to better avoid inaccuracies that minimize reimbursement or raise compliance flags without affecting DNFB (Days Not Final Billed).Post-bill auditing can identify trends and opportunities for coding accuracy improvement. Flagged charts are returned in real time with suspected issues and supporting narratives on the recommended corrections, increasing accuracy while educating coders and improving their performance over the long term.
Streamline Health engaged several of their existing Coding Audit Services clients to gain insight into how the new Looking Glass eValuator technology could benefit healthcare providers. The Company plans to make the new solution available to its clients and reseller partners immediately following HIMSS.
