Boulder, CO - Newswise — After a successful pilot of the first and only mobile platform that streamlines the physician query process, Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS) will strengthen and expand its collaboration with Artifact Health, a leading innovator in physician-centric clinical documentation improvement (CDI) solutions. MSHS will expand the Artifact mobile query platform throughout its system, one of New York City's largest integrated healthcare delivery systems, encompassing eight hospitals, a leading medical school, and over 450 ambulatory practices throughout greater New York, New Jersey and Palm Beach, FL.

The Mount Sinai Hospital and Mount Sinai Queens served as pilot sites for Artifact Health's mobile physician query platform in January of this year and will roll out throughout the system this September. The platform makes it easier for physicians to respond to clinical questions from CDI specialists and medical coders resulting in higher-quality documentation, proper reimbursement and more accurate publicly reported quality outcomes.

Stephen Teitelbaum, MD, Medical Director for Clinical Documentation Quality Improvement and Vice President of Clinical Data Integrity at MSHS said, "Expanding the Artifact platform is part of a larger strategy at Mount Sinai to reduce physician burnout by providing technologies that engage physicians with faster and easier administrative workflows. One of the key priorities emerging from our massive effort battling the pandemic in New York City is to deploy technologies that ease burden on physicians and give them back time to care for patients. During the pilot, Mount Sinai physicians found Artifact Health's technology to be convenient, fast and easy to use which went into our decision to deploy across our hospitals."

"As Mount Sinai accelerates our transition to business models focused on population health management, our physicians require innovative tools enabling quality clinical documentation in the medical record," said Luke Hermann, MD, Senior Vice President, Clinical Business Intelligence and Implementation at MSHS and Associate Professor in Emergency Medicine at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "Our goal is to accurately and completely capture the health status of our patients and the high-quality care they receive."

Traditionally, the query process is onerous and time-consuming for physicians, clinical documentation specialists and medical coders. With Artifact Health's HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based, mobile query platform, physicians respond to a query compliantly in seconds with as few as three taps on their smartphone. By engaging physicians with a faster and easier process, Artifact drives improvements in hospital and physician coding accuracy and publicly reported quality measures.

"We are extremely proud to partner with Mount Sinai Health System to help their physicians more easily document the high-quality care they provide," said Marisa MacClary, co-founder and CEO of Artifact Health. "We're looking forward to continuing to collaborate with Mount Sinai in ways that support participation in value-based care models without imposing additional documentation burden on physicians."

About Artifact Health Artifact Health provides the first and only mobile platform that streamlines the physician query process so hospitals can improve the quality of patient records and ensure full reimbursement for services. Already in use by thousands of physicians, Artifact simplifies a traditionally time-consuming, multi-step process allowing physicians to respond to queries anytime, anywhere in seconds. By shortening average physician response time to queries by 20x, Artifact helps CDI specialists and coders receive more accurate responses faster, which can translate into millions of dollars in revenue for hospitals.
