NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nym Health, a leader in transforming clinical language into actionable information, today announced that it is the winner of the “Health Administration Innovation Award” in the sixth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program. An independent market intelligence organization that identifies the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market, MedTech Breakthrough recognized Nym for automating and improving the efficiency of revenue cycle operations, enabling precise and rapid medical billing processes, and improving payment cycles for hospitals and health systems across the US.
Powered by a clinical language understanding (CLU) engine, Nym’s revenue cycle management (RCM) solution interprets provider notes within patient charts and turns them into compliant ICD-10-CM and CPT reimbursement codes. The Nym platform does this instantly, with greater than 96% accuracy and zero human intervention. Additionally, Nym provides comprehensive, audit-ready, traceable codes for full transparency, an approach which allows it to explain how the platform translates the clinical language in the patient charts into medical billing codes.
“We’re proud that Nym has been recognized for changing the way healthcare providers approach medical coding, providing them with the technology to interpret clinical language within seconds and automate burdensome and costly administrative processes,” said Amihai Niederman, Nym’s CEO and Co-Founder. “Our goal is to deliver a solution that can meaningfully eliminate friction in the system and reduce administrative complexity and, in doing so, free up healthcare providers so that they can spend more time on patient care.”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,900 nominations from over 15 different countries.
“The single largest component of healthcare waste is what’s called ‘administrative complexity,’ accounting for over 265 billion dollars of waste annually – and medical coding represents a large component of this within the US healthcare system,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “In significantly reducing dependence on antiquated, manual billing processes, which lead to coding-related denials from insurers that add up to billions in lost revenue annually for healthcare providers, Nym is modernizing revenue cycle management and helping hospitals ensure financial stability and growth. Congratulations on winning the ‘Health Administration Innovation Award.’”
