Autonomous Coding Services


Considering the increasing shortage of coders and inconsistencies in high volume coding environments, adoption of an autonomous coding strategy is the most cost-effective way to optimize your HIM operations.

  • NDS uses latest versions of AI, like supervised Deep Learning and NLP
  • Multiple AI engines identify all the discrete diagnosis and procedure values and then assign the most suitable ICD-10-CM code and CPT codes and modifiers.
  • In case the AI engine cannot determine codes from the submitted chart, it will route that chart to a human coder, record that response and use it the next time a similar chart appears in the work queue.
  • Uses AMA licensed data for higher levels of coding compliance.

The automated system ensures consistent coding quality since the decision-making is not solely dependent upon humans. It reduces the impact of staffing issues since automation takes over most of the routine tasks. It offers a faster turnaround since the system can process medical charts much faster than a human coder. It ensures lower denials since the system incorporates built-in NCCI edits and payer rules.
