EHR and Coding Resources Comparison:
You are the coding supervisor at a major acute care hospital. The hospital administration has been studying payment and outcome metrics for the institution, and realizes that the current electronic health records system may be outdated. You have been asked to create a report that answers the following question: “What EHR and coding resources would you recommend to the hospital administration to ensure that the most current ICD-10-CM/PCS codes are in use in your healthcare facility?” Your report should compare at least 3 EHR systems that you have been exposed to in this course (for example Nuance Clintegrity, 3M Encoder, VistA) or worked with in the past. Your comparison should include features such as coding resources, advantages/disadvantages, and computer system requirements for each system. Your report should include your final recommendation out of the three systems you review and the rationale for your decision. Your comparison report should be well-ordered, logical, and unified, as well as original and insightful. Your report should include a comparison table that summarizes your findings. It is not necessary to follow paragraph style in the comparison table.
