Spurred by adoption of ICD-10 code sets, nearly half of providers surveyed by vendor research firm KLAS Enterprises for a new report expect to buy computer-assisted coding software within two years.

While the CAC market remains young and no vendor has fully proven itself in the inpatient market, provider confidence in the technology is high, according to report author Graham Triggs. The new report, “Computer-Assisted Coding: A Glimpse at the Future of HIM Technology,” looks at differences between software for inpatient and outpatient settings, criteria for considering a product, and a review of major inpatient vendors.

Companies mentioned in the report include 3M Health Information Systems, Cerner, CodeRyte (just bought by 3M), Dolbey, M*Modal, OptumInsight, PlatoCode, Precyse and QuadraMed. The report is available at klasresearch.com/reports, priced at $980 for providers and $11,980 for others.
