Webmedx, a Atlanta, Ga.-based medical content provider and medical transcription service, announced that The Valley Hospital, a 451-bed acute care facility and member of Valley Health System in Ridgewood, N.J., has begun an enterprise-wide implementation of Webmedx’s newest solution for clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and quality reporting, QualityAnalytics. In addition, the organization recently installed Webmedx’s web-native technology, Enterprise5, for clinical documentation and is using the company’s Best in KLAS* outsourced transcription services to support over 800 physicians across all clinical departments.

An advanced NLP, text and data mining system, QualityAnalytics identifies and abstracts discrete information concurrently from narrative, free-text documents and other clinical systems, and converts it to actionable data for a variety of secondary uses. Discrete data derived from narrative reports, Narradata, can be used for upload to the EHR, clinical documentation improvement (CDI), coding reviews, RAC audits, patient safety, core measures monitoring and more. Users conduct ad hoc searches on virtually any phrase or diagnostic code using the NLP engine, without the need for custom reports or IT department intervention.
