Ochsner Health Adopts Nym's Medical Coding Engine to Enable Revenue Cycle Automation
Nym Health, a leader in translating clinical language into actionable information, today announced that its medical coding technology is powering revenue cycle management for Ochsner Health's emergency departments.
An integrated healthcare system that operates 40 hospitals and more than 300 health and urgent care centers across Louisiana, Mississippi and the Gulf South, Ochsner Health is using the Nym engine to optimize the speed and efficiency of its medical coding and billing processes.
"We're focused on simplifying complexity and building the capacity and scalability to meet future needs, such as those associated with resourcing, dynamic workflows and rapidly growing visit volumes across the continuum of care," said Vicki Kaplan, Vice President, Coding and HIM, Ochsner Health. "Automating coding for medical billing in Ochsner's emergency departments is a key component of this effort, and we're looking forward to working with Nym to continuously improve our operations."
Combining clinical expertise, computational linguistics and explainable AI, Nym has developed technology that can understand clinical language and provides an entirely new way of analyzing and decoding medical records into clear, concise and actionable information. The Company's innovative solution for revenue cycle management leverages the Nym engine to translate free text within patient charts into accurate, compliant and explainable diagnostic and billing codes (ICD-10-CM and CPT), all within a matter of seconds and with zero human intervention.
"In delivering scalable solutions that automate manual ractices and eliminate workflow pain points, Nym's goal is to simplify administrative processes for providers and enable better healthcare," said Amihai Neiderman, Nym's CEO and Co-Founder. "We're excited to have the opportunity to partner with Ochsner Health and work alongside the top-tier coding organization they have established, adding value for a nationally recognized healthcare system that inspires healthier lives and stronger communities."
