Core Measures

Abstraction Services

At iMedX we understand that documenting and improving your patient’s quality of care is a crucial aspect of your quality improvement initiatives. We offer a cost-effective alternative to in-house abstraction which allows you to reallocate your resources, and utilize enhanced abstraction data, which will lower your department’s operating costs all while maintaining control of the abstraction process.

The Core of Our Services

  • Concurrent /Retrospective Abstracting

  • Regular professional feedback reports on your core measure results

  • Strategies and best practices to improve publicly-reported scores

  • Recommendations for documentation and process improvements

  • Physician and staff education on current/new measures and proper core measure documentation

  • Identification/analysis of problem areas and how to implement new protocols

Our Process

From the initial implementation iMedX’s trained abstractors are your resource for abstraction, feedback and education. In essence, we partner with you to become an off-site member of your team, completing your concurrent or retrospective abstraction in a timely and effective manner. Your dedicated account representative is available to you any time to discuss any aspect of your abstraction program and help you achieve your goals.

This alternative workflow is proven to reduce costs, increase quality reporting, educate staff, and provide an efficient operational workflow so you can re-deploy valuable staffing resources to increase reimbursements, and to focus more on improving the quality of care provided at your facility.
