New HCC-Coder Product, Including Drug Dictionary and other Critical Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC) Coding Tools and Resources

May 18, 2017

HCC-Coder will make Find-A-Code the first and only encoder in the market to include a full drug dictionary. This will provide our customers with the ability to search by the name of the drug and link to related diagnoses (with corresponding ICD-10-CM codes), as well as the ability to search individual ICD-10-CM codes and see corresponding drugs.

At launch, Taylor Smith, Chief Customer Officer of Find-A-Code, said, "We're really excited to offer our newest product called HCC-Coder, as this collection of tools and resources will fill a critical and fast-growing need in the medical coding industry. The launch of HCC-Coder will make Find-A-Code the first and only encoder in the market to include a full Drug Dictionary, as well as other critically needed tools and resources for HCC coding. These new features coupled with our existing user-friendly FindACode.com interface and 100% US-based customer support and development teams make Find-A-Code's new HCC-Coder product the ultimate solution for every HCC coder's needs!"

HCC-Coder has some great features including icon indicators to clearly distinguish Chronic vs. Acute conditions, link directly from ICD-10-CM codes to related HCC Measures (and see which HCC group takes precedence in each case), as well as enter a full list of ICD-10-CM codes, click a button, and see all corresponding HCC measures in a table.

Sage Morgan added, "As a Quality Manager for a major Risk Adjustment Solution company I’ve researched many encoders to assist my company in being #1 in our industry. I was unable to find any one encoder that had all the required elements I was looking for. I was looking for a product that would easily Identify a DX as an HCC or an RxHCC, identify the DX as Chronic or Acute, alert the coder that he had made a previous not on that particular DX. Most importantly I wanted an encoder that incorporated a drug database inside the encoder. The drug database was my impossible get with every encoder company I contacted. I reached out to Find a Code, told them what I was looking for and their Development team worked with me to create the perfect tool for HCC coding. They added user-friendly Icon’s identifying a DX as HCC or RxHCC, as Chronic or Acute and a note Icon to alert the coder to previously entered notes related to that particular DX. Most importantly they researched and integrated a drug dictionary into their encoder allowing the coder to have a one stop product for HCC coding! Congratulations Find-A-Code on the creation and successful launch of a fantastic new product!
