Q: Is CAC really done by computer?

A: The PLATOCODE Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC) process is entirely performed by computer. Electronic charts are sent to the PLATOCODE server which "reads" the records and returns a set of codes a few moments later. These codes are then reviewed/audited by your own human coders. Under this process, all your coders act as senior coders who review code sets produced by somebody (or something) else rather than doing it all themselves. It's much quicker and less tiring, especially for bulky inpatient charts.
