Physicians and nurses are caring for a rising number of patients in response to COVID-19. To help healthcare systems address the increased intensity and operational stress that COVID-19 is placing on care teams, Nuance has engaged in the rapid development of a solution that provides EHR-agnostic COVID-19 documentation content and templates based on CDC and AHIMA guidelines for coding and reporting. Drs. Conant and Pelo provide specific guidance about entering key information to accurately and quickly capture patient acuity, the complexity of symptoms, and the risk of mortality for COVID-19.
