BALTIMORE, October 6, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Black Book™ surveyed 4,021 medical practices, hospitals, and healthcare organization HIM users, including 2,826 coding professionals, to determine the top-performing vendors among in-demand computer-assisted coding, clinical documentation improvement software, speech recognition, transcription systems, and outsourced coding services, and to assess the gaps and urgencies of coding technology administration.
With post-pandemic health system margins waning below 2.3% nationwide, providers urgently seek opportunities for digital transformations to capture all revenue sources through updated software solutions and anticipate industry shifts through innovative analytics and forecasting tools to artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and enhanced coding innovations.
Black Book conducts polls and surveys with healthcare executives and front-line users about their current technology and service partners and awards top-performing vendors based on performance on 18 qualitative indicators of client experience, loyalty, and customer satisfaction, among other critical KPIs.
"The latest wave of economic and labor challenges accompanying the tentative shift to value-based care finds most providers navigating through virtual health options to initiate highly positive patient experiences and reverse sinking margins," said Black Book's President Doug Brown. "The absence of advanced coding tools, strategic dysfunction caused by failed EHR integration, and outdated speech recognition systems has put an organizational focus on the immediate technology needs of health information management leaders."
