Drive Accuracy and Improve Outcomes with SmartCare

Anaheim, CA – September 22, 2021 – Select Data, a company with thirty years of home health and coding experience, today announced a breakthrough in improving coding accuracy and patient care planning.  SmartCare leverages artificial intelligence to identify key diagnosis phrases immersed throughout large referral documents, allowing agencies to improve care quality and ensure accurate coding and reimbursement.

By applying AI models that in seconds understand and summarize patient information important to home health admissions, SmartCare assists the full spectrum of the clinical team, from field clinicians, to coders, to utilization and QA reviewers.  Equipped with these insights, field staff have a more efficient approach to preparing for patient visits and completing patient documentation.   While coders and clinical review staff have unprecedented functionality to a now highlighted and searchable referral document, providing efficiencies in workflow and driving better patient outcomes and more accurate reimbursement.

“SmartCare allows our team to search for specific conditions within the documentation as an easier means of identification of pertinent diagnoses and provider confirmation,” said V.P. of Clinical Services, Laura Hodges.  “Tools that enable us to deliver a higher level of coding accuracy and the ability of capturing appropriate comorbidity adjustments in turn, better represents the care being provided to patients.”

Built from thousands of historical patient files with successful outcomes, and millions of clinical documentation pages, SmartCare’s OCR transforms patient documents into computer readable content and applies natural language processing technology to interpret key diagnosis phrases and patient information. Early adopters of the AI have realized increases in PDGM co-morbidity adjustments, as well as workflow process improvements.

“In addition to our successful provider rollouts, Select Data has been using SmartCare to power our outsourced coding operations team since 2020,” said Ed Buckley, CEO of Select Data. “SmartCare’s AI data models get better with each new partner we bring on board.  We’re actively recruiting enterprise early-adopter partners to help them realize the power of SmartCare.”
