MedQuist Adds Computer-Assisted Coding

Transcription and clinical documentation vendor MedQuist Inc. will integrate its CodeRunner coding application with the EMscribe computer-assisted coding software of Artificial Medical Intelligence Inc., Eatontown, N.J.

Computer-assisted coding systems use natural language processing technology to identify key words and phrases in physician dictated notes either in a voice file or machine-readable text. The software then matches the key words and phrases to appropriate terminologies and code sets, and then automatically codes the notes, which professional coders review.

CodeRunner integrates with Mount Laurel, N.J.-based MedQuist's DocQment Enterprise Platform for transcribed documents, as well as third-party transcription systems. More information is available at medquist.com and artificialmed.com.
