A: It is a tool for clinical coders to help them work better and quicker, allowing the facility to generate bills more quickly and save money.
Q: How does it work?
A: Charts are sent from your document management system(s) to a PLATOCODE server which codes the chart and returns the results. The results are stored at your facility until the coder is ready to review them. The coder then validates the results on her PC and the final set of codes returned for billing.
Q: Is there a diagram of the PLATOCODE CAC process available?
Q: So the system needs a mechanism to get the charts, somewhere to store the results, and some software on the coder's PC?
