Children’s National Health System integrates mobile query system in EHRs

Children’s National Health System has chosen Artifact Health’s mobile physician query solution to improve the quality of its patient records and ensure full reimbursement.

“Artifact’s mobile query solution gives physicians an easier way to respond to CDI and coding questions that add greater specificity to the patient’s record,” said Alec King, Children’s executive vice president and CFO. “We wanted to ease the burden on our physicians, so they could spend less time on administrative tasks and more time on patient care.”

In order to achieve accurate medical coding, and therefore provide reimbursement and quality score for the hospital and physician, Children’s National will be integrating Artifact with its Cerner patient record system for faster response times from physicians.

“Leading hospitals like Children’s National understand the deep connections among accurate physician documentation, coding and quality scores,” said Marisa MacClary, co-founder and CEO of Artifact Health. “Improving physician query workflow makes a measurable impact on scores and helps hospitals secure full reimbursement for the care they provide. We’re looking forward to working closely with Children’s National to bring efficiency and convenience to their physicians, CDI specialists and coders.”
