What is Autonomous Coding?
Autonomous Coding represents a pivotal shift in the healthcare industry, harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to streamline the labor-intensive and error-prone task of medical coding.
What does this mean for hospitals and health systems?
Autonomous Coding technology automates the translation of patient care documentation and clinical notes into standardized alphanumeric billing codes, significantly reducing the need for human intervention. Autonomous Coding fills a clear need for healthcare providers in a healthcare landscape marked by a severe labor shortage of qualified coding staff, leading to substantial backlogs in medical claim reimbursements.
Additional benefits include:
- Increase efficiency and time savings
- Improve accuracy
- Cost reduction
- Compliance and regulatory adherence
Panda Health looks forward to welcoming Autonomous Coding technologies to our platform, and helping hospitals across the US implement these beneficial solutions.
Stay tuned for our Spotlight next week to learn more about Autonomous Coding and how it compares to medical coding technologies.
