Computer-Assisted Coding:
Optimize your CAC Investment

Computer assisted coding (CAC) systems are a proven technology to improve coder productivity and automate the coding process, especially with the new challenges of ICD-10.  However, many organizations’ CAC investments aren’t producing the quality and efficiency impacts promised.

eCatalyst works with you to advance CAC initiatives and achieve your transformational goals.  From initial vendor evaluations to workflow re-engineering and system implementation, you can rely on eCatalyst to:

  • Make the most of your CAC technology
  • Improve coding quality and compliance
  • Increase productivity

With CAC systems, you don’t get what you purchase, you get what you maximize. eCatalyst helps your organization select the right CAC technology vendor, fully implement the system you’ve already purchased, or make the most of your existing investment.  We’re with you every step of the CAC journey.
