ALPHARETTA, Ga., June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Saince today announced the launch of PracticePerfect the much-awaited outpatient clinical documentation improvement (CDI) solution. PracticePerfect is the industry first and most comprehensive ambulatory CDI solution that includes tools for documentation improvement, risk adjustment and quality measures.

Hospitals are experiencing decreasing inpatient revenues and increasing outpatient volumes. A trend which has been continuing for the past several years. With the focus gradually shifting from inpatient to outpatient revenues, clinical documentation improvement in the outpatient setting is coming on to the center stage. At the same time, private and public insurance companies are paying increasing attention to physicians’ and hospitals’ quality scores.

PracticePerfect has the ability to automatically identify CMS and HHS Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC) based on clinical codes, patient demographics, and other relevant criteria. Along with HCCs, the software also identifies prescription HCCs (RxHCC) and risk adjustment for End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).

PracticePerfect also has inbuilt intelligence to identify pertinent quality measures and bring them to the attention of the physician at the point of care. This workflow will significantly improve the documentation quality at the physician level and their quality scores.

With integrated Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) quality measures as well, PracticePerfect will help Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) participating in Shared Services Program in improving the quality of care they provide to their patient population.

Raghu Vir, President of Saince said, “A clinical documentation improvement tool like PracticePerfect is ideally suited to meet these evolving challenges of the healthcare industry. PracticePerfect is designed to help providers improve their clinical documentation standards, protect their reimbursements and monitor the quality of care they provide.”

The tool has attracted quite a bit of attention among healthcare providers and major hospital systems.
