ICDLogic and Thornberry collaborate to solve ICD-10 challenges in home health

Mamaroneck, NY August 27, 2015ICDLogic, an innovator in clinical documentation and ICD-10 compliant solutions today announced its partnership with Thornberry Ltd. to provide CypherLink service inside NDoc®, a fully CCHIT Certified® Long Term and Post Acute Care (LTPAC) electronic health records (EHR) system designed specifically for homecare and hospice management.  Thornberry received the distinguished Best in KLAS award for Homecare software for 2014 and 2013.

“We spent 20 years building NDoc into the frontrunner of home health EHRs by understanding the unique needs of our customers,” says Tom Peth, Thornberry President and Chief Executive. “ICDLogic has done the same by recognizing that ICD-10 is a clinical documentation challenge that begins with the provider, not the coder,” he added.

CypherLink is the EHR-integrated version of Cypher by ICDLogic, an intuitive web-based clinical documentation and ICD-10 workflow tool built for speed, ease of use, and expert clinical documentation guidance. Designed by clinicians, coders and CDI experts, Cypher quickly generates the most specific ICD-10 and ICD-9 codes based on clinical thinking. It reminds clinicians to document relevant underlying causes, additional factors, complications and comorbidities that accurately convey complexity of care.

“Most EHRs consider their systems ICD-10 ready by providing flat pick-lists of all the potential ICD-10 codes with no clinical documentation guidance,” explains ICDLogic CEO, Monique Fayad. “Many EHR problem lists default to an unspecified code as the first choice, which is the likely option a busy provider will select. Use of unspecified codes undermines full and fair reimbursement for providers and can trigger denials and queries that delay cash flow. “

“Full and fair reimbursement is crucial to home health providers,” adds Peth. “Our valued customers can’t afford the certain cash flow disruption that ICD-10 will bring, and CypherLink helps ensure they won’t.”

NDoc with CypherLink will be available for subscription beginning in September.
