ProVation® MD software for procedure documentation and coding compliance replaces dictation/transcription and streamlines the coding and billing process. Driven by deep medical content, ProVation MD allows clinicians to quickly and completely document medical procedures and apply the appropriate CPT and ICD codes, as well as CCI edits. ProVation is currently used by thousands of clinicians at close to 700 hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers, in specialties including Cardiology, ENT, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Pain Management, Plastic Surgery, Pulmonology and Urology.
"By streamlining and automating the documentation and coding process, ProVation software eliminates transcription costs and recovers previously lost revenues.
