Episource showcases its groundbreaking innovations in risk adjustment with a presentation led by Chief Operating Officer, Erik Simonsen.


Los Angeles, Calif., June 16, 2021  Episource, one of the largest services and technology companies for risk adjustment and quality, is returning to RISE Risk Adjustment Forum 2021, an event taking place June 30 and July 1 both virtually and live in Orlando, FL. As a key sponsor, Episource will showcase its groundbreaking innovations in risk adjustment with a presentation led by Chief Operating Officer, Erik Simonsen: Using Technology to Improve Compliance Across the Risk Adjustment Lifecycle.

The 17th RISE Risk Adjustment Forum brings together subject matter experts in risk adjustment and quality to share insights for risk adjustment program improvements that drive revenue-boosting results. For two days, stakeholders across health plans, providers, and risk bearing entities will gather to learn and share insights on the impact of new technologies and policy and compliance regulations, as well as many other timely discussions.

Episource Chief Operating Officer, Erik Simonsen, will present on an increasingly critical topic focused on how NLP-powered technology should be utilized to improve data integrity and maximize risk adjustment program compliance. He will share the stage with industry experts Donna Malone, Director Ambulatory CDQI, Mount Sinai Hospital System, and Adele Towers, MD MPH FACP, CRC, Director, Risk Adjustment, UPMC Enterprises.

This presentation will review:

  • How to avoid potential audits from CMS/OIG by utilizing NLP solutions to increase coding accuracy.
  • Maximize your tools to increase provider awareness of coding challenges and dramatically reduce error rates in coding.
  • How to use analytics to drive provider education programs—and get your data right from the beginning.

“With recent increases in CMS and OIG audits, it is more important now than ever to understand the tools and technologies that can improve data integrity—across the entire risk adjustment lifecycle. We have seen a greater demand for and adoption of NLP-powered solutions and similar tools as well as more robust provider education strategies. Our presentation will share how risk adjustment leaders can get their data right from the start and maintain coding accuracy throughout the entirety of their program,” said Episource Co-CEO, Harsith Ramesh.

In addition to sharing key learnings at this event, Episource is also helping health plans and providers navigate the world of compliance and documentation completeness with the expansion of its risk adjustment SaaS tool, epiCoder—an NLP-powered coding tool that allows clients to code charts in-house or audit vendor work. This expansion adds to the leading healthcare technology vendor’s already robust end-to-end platform.

“epiCoder’s workflow has been meticulously refined to maximize efficiency in support of our coding operations. Our software can easily meet client needs in large part because it is time-tested and supported by best-in-class NLP that has been in use and trained by Episource’s team of more than 3,000 coders, reviewing more than 11 million charts per year,” said Erik Simonsen.
