Press Release – updated: Jan 10, 2018 08:00 EST
LOUISVILLE, Ky., January 10, 2018 – Cayuga Medical Center (CMC) is a progressive general hospital located in Ithaca, New York, serving the residents of Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Cortland, Schuyler, Seneca, Tioga and Tompkins counties. The hospital has 212 beds in total and is one of the largest hospitals in the Finger Lakes region and the Southern Tier.
ezCAC™/ezCDI™ will enable Cayuga Medical Center physicians to effortlessly collaborate with Health Information Management, Coders and CDI staff, providing the highest degree of code assignment, clinical documentation integrity and coding compliance.
ezDI applications are more secure than traditional on-premise solutions with a dramatically lower total cost of ownership through the elimination of maintenance fees and upgrade costs and a significantly decreased effort to install and operate.
CMC was originally drawn to ezDI by its relationship with ACDIS and the further backing of the Iroquois Healthcare Alliance. The ezDI team has been very easy to work with and was able to demonstrate the user-friendliness and benefits of their cloud-based platform in addition to the detailed real-time analytics that the software provides. We look forward to reaping the benefits of the efficiencies that this product delivers and identifying opportunities to optimize our revenue cycle.
