Inferscience was founded by Dr. Sunil Nihalani with the mission to help clinicians provide high quality care based on clinical guidelines, evidence-based studies and scientific data. With the increasing importance of value-based care in healthcare, the company realized that clinicians need better HCC Coding tools, which led to the development of the HCC Assistant and other risk adjustment applications by Inferscience.
Inferscience’s vision is that EHR data should be utilized in conjunction with guidelines based algorithms to improve care outcomes by enabling clinicians to make evidence-based, patient-specific clinical decisions at the point of care. The same approach can be utilized to improve documentation of the patient’s clinical condition for risk adjustment purposes
Inferscience provides the only HCC Coding Software designed
to give real time HCC coding guidance to providers and coders
in their workflow within the EHR, the HCC Assistant.
HCC assistant parses the patient chart and shows all possible HCC related diagnoses in real-time to the provider or the coder so that HCC opportunities are not missed while documenting the patient visit.
Real time risk adjustment factor (RAF) scoring within the platform suggests how codes selected will impact the RAF score for a patient thereby predicting future funding and expenditures.
