HCC Assistant for athenaClinicals EHR

HCC Coding Technology

The HCC Assistant is the only HCC Coding solution that analyzes both clinical and claims information to provide the clinician with HCC coding guidance based on a 360-degree view of the patient’s condition.


How does it work?

The HCC Assistant’s NLP-based rules engine performs a prospective analysis of patient information found with the Cerner PowerChart EHR, as well as retrospective analysis of submitted medical claims, to instantly identify and close HCC Coding gaps. The HCC Assistant can be used within the athena EHR, while the clinician is working in the patient’s chart, the HCC Assistant analyses the chart to provide HCC Coding suggestions.
