Newton AI Assisted-Coding tool

Uses our ED/UC AI-assisted coding platform that integrates Machine learning, Natural Language Processing(NLP), and Robotic Process Automation(RPA) to automate medical coding. Our coding solution ingests PDF chart, EMR data, and also other formats to extract the data required for assisted-coding and error prediction, accounts for ‘Critical to Quality Fields’ and generates the automated results for LOS, CPT, ICD, MIPS, and Modifiers along with probable reasons and validates medical necessity. In the Real-time audit process, the efficiency increases by allowing the team to focus on the most critical charts while drastically reducing your overall coding costs.

Error Prediction tool

This AI-based advanced predictive algorithm touches all charts predicting the erroneously coded chart and generating audit samples; it works equally well on manually or auto-coded charts. It validates the correctness of coding and utilizes RAT stat models for random sampling. Besides following an OIG stipulated methodology, it also gives auditors recommendations and prioritizes the charts based on anticipated dollar loss.

ED/UC Quality Audit Models(QA)

Our ED/UC QA models primarily follow a three-stage quality control process. It starts with establishing current error rates by randomly picking-up sample claims for a statistically significant volume and auditing them to establish benchmark accuracy. Erroneous claims are picked in the second stage using various techniques like Best fit classification model, Loss Recovery Model & OIG Compliance Algorithm, etc. Finally, we establish audit volumes to achieve the required SLA and manage focused trip audits through a manual audit.

Billing Automation

We use Robotic Process Automation to automate billing processes such as Eligibility check, Charge Entry, Payment posting & Remit, which reduces manual billing errors and improves compliance standards.

AR Bots & Touch Analytics

AR Bots consists of automated module Aging(ATB) Analysis, Work Queue Prioritization, Auto Analysis & Claims Status, and take actions based on updated status. Our AR bots with predictive modeling help follow-ups on A/R aging and update the status. This deep learning algorithm coupled with ED/UC specialty-driven BI tools enables us to provide insights into Claims touch efficiencies, AR allocation avoidance, and outstanding collectibles.

SensER

Provides next-generation advanced analytics to deliver actionable intelligence for ER leaders. SensER aggregates data from multiple transaction systems – revenue cycle management, the hospital’s transaction system, physicians calendar, patient data, and other available sources, to derive critical Operational, Financial, Clinical Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and creates analytical models. Such a deep and detailed analysis of the organizational performance helps physicians improve the overall quality and cost of delivering care.
