RazorInsights Selects Health Language, Inc. to Streamline Physician Workflows and Meet Stage 2 Meaningful Use Criteria

Health Language, Inc. (HLI), the global leader in healthcare terminology management, today announced that RazorInsights, a leading provider of health IT solutions for rural, critical-access and community hospitals, has selected its Language Engine (LE) and provider friendly terminology (PFT) to help providers more easily search for and select problems to achieve compliance with Stage 2 Meaningful Use regulations.

RazorInsights will incorporate HLI’s software into its electronic health record (EHR) system to support standard terminologies such as SNOMED CT, ICD-9, and ICD-10. The LE and PFT will work in tandem to ease the documentation process for physicians; the LE automatically maps, stores and updates data in the standard codes, while the PFT allows clinicians to use familiar expressions when searching for the codes.

“Due to their limited resources, clinicians in rural hospitals can greatly benefit from simplified methods for documenting problems and diagnoses in order to achieve Meaningful Use and ultimately improve patient care,” said Reed Liggin, R.Ph, MBA, president of RazorInsights. “This partnership enables us to alleviate some of the provider burden as they transition to an electronic environment by supporting a single, integrated database from which they can access clinical and financial data more easily and accurately. We also look forward to working with Health Language as we expand into future markets.”

RazorInsights selected Health Language due to the company’s reputation as an industry leader in terminology management, the extensive library of provider-friendly synonyms linked to standards and the high quality search algorithms and mappings. By integrating HLI’s software with its EHR systems, RazorInsights will enable its providers to:

  • Leverage clinical synonyms such as “afib” and “PNA” to search for problems and diagnoses;
  • Record problems more easily in SNOMED CT in order to meet Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements;
  • Leverage mappings to ICD-9 and ICD-10 to minimize the ICD-10 learning curve and ensure accurate reimbursement; and
  • Minimize the number of clicks in order to streamline clinician workflow and enhance productivity.

“In a value-based healthcare setting, hospitals need more than quick fixes for documentation and workflow,” said Brian McDonald, executive vice president and chief financial officer at Health Language. “With the Language Engine and provider friendly terminology in place, RazorInsights’ clients are poised to deliver a higher quality of care long beyond Stage 2 Meaningful Use.”
