  • Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood, TX (1888PressRelease) October 20, 2011 - Integrity Digital Solutions and the Corcoran Consulting Group of San Bernardino, Calif. announced today they have partnered together to deliver Corcoran Consulting Group's first coding compliance tool for ophthalmic electronic medical records.

    This coding tool, called the Corcoran Compliance Connection, is built seamlessly into Integrity's web-based electronic medical record software for ophthalmologists and optometrists known as Integrity EMR for Eyes™. The coding tool evaluates every patient encounter and then suggests the most appropriate code, based on an intelligent set of rules that interpret up to 160 data elements from each encounter. The coding rules are continuously updated to reflect the ever-changing guidelines set forth by insurance companies and Medicare.

    Long respected as a thought leader in medical coding protocols for eye medicine, the Corcoran Consulting Group chose Integrity EMR for Eyes™ as the first EMR product to integrate the Corcoran Compliance Connection. "We are grateful to have found a partner like Integrity Digital Solutions," said Kevin J. Corcoran, president of Corcoran Consulting Group. "Their passion for excellence, their commitment to the eye medicine community and their set of values mirrors our own. They had the deep technical skills necessary to incorporate our sophisticated coding tool into their EMR application. We look forward to a collaboration that will help eye doctors provide efficient patient care and reach their full revenue potential while reducing unnecessary risk exposure."

    "Eye doctors face a formidable challenge when it comes to coding issues for the treatment they provide," said Integrity CEO Chris Moore. "Improper coding can result in the loss of substantial revenue on the one hand, and risk exposure to non-compliance penalties on the other in the event of an audit."

    The Corcoran Compliance Connection offers numerous benefits, including:

    • Improved Accuracy: The average ophthalmologist or optometrist reports the appropriate CPT code for an office visit only about 70% of the time. The Corcoran Compliance Connection can increase the accuracy of coding for eye exams to 95% or more.

    • Elimination of Guesswork: This expert system requires no subjective input from the physician in order to generate a coding suggestion.

    • Risk Reduction: The Corcoran Compliance Connection analyzes each medical record with the same methodology and analytical principles that Corcoran's expert consultants employ. Providers can practice medicine with the assurance that every office visit code billed has been rigorously tested and is extremely likely to withstand the scrutiny of an audit.

    • Enhanced Revenues: Since physicians frequently "under-code" to avoid confrontation with payers, the Corcoran Compliance Connection can boost revenues for most practices by giving the physician the confidence to bill the appropriate code without subjecting the practice to undue risk.

    Because Integrity EMR for Eyes™ is a web-based software product, there are no updates to install. All changes in the coding functionality, as well as other features, are immediately available each time a user accesses the software.
