Client Challenges

This industry is ever changing and faces even greater upheavals with rising health care costs, changes in demographics worldwide, mandates requiring access to healthcare for all and digitization of data.  The underlying driver for success is the ability to deliver quality patient care in a timely manner and with reduced cost. The concepts seem orthogonal, but are achievable through the application of the right systems and processes. The key is to combine the most appropriate IT foundation to your operation to facilitate data sharing and translucency for better care.

What CDS Provides

With our expertise and experience in the Healthcare industry, CDS can transform your healthcare enterprise to meet the challenges of today and into the future.  Our offerings provide you with services and solutions that modernize your operations, empowering you to meet regulatory compliance, streamline business operations, and ultimately, provide superior patient care.

Our Health 10 Program

The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 poses great challenges to healthcare organizations. Partnering with the right service provider will not only give you piece of mind, it will ensure proper identification of changes needed to smoothly transition from point A to point B. Provider organizations require robust transition solutions that relieve the pressure of this exercise while maintaining seamless operations.

Our Health 10 program is an end-to-end transition and implementation solution for all ICD-10 requirements. ICD-10 transitions involve detailed system audits and updates to existing software and interfaces. It also includes modified business processes and workflows, investment in new tools and extensive training programs. Health 10 helps providers navigate through transition stages with minimal disruption to their operations. This robust framework leverages our previous experience with ICD-10 implementation and in-house proprietary tools and frameworks.

We make you ICD-10 compliant through:

  • ICD transition roadmaps
  • ICD-10 implementation
  • ICD-10 testing services
Healthcare Payers

CDS leverages their knowledge of business challenges faced by Healthcare insurers, managed care providers and benefit managers to help address and overcome them. Healthcare benefit managers guide consumers constantly through the shifting waters of healthcare benefits and claims. CDS is well experienced in providing data and information to run diverse management functions like member-customer service activation programs, claims management and adjudication service systems.

CDS has worked extensively with government institutions to provide payment solutions and remittance service programs for the Healthcare industry in the U.S. CDS utilizes vast industry knowledge to provide clients with complete outsourcing solutions.

From application development and integration to managing enterprise network solutions, we propose a sturdy architectural plan that supports flexibility and sustenance in today’s ever-changing healthcare benefits market.

Healthcare costs have spiraled leaving the industry faced with challenges of delivering quality efficiently. While providers look to technology to help ease the pressures of maintaining profitable operations, payers can benefit as well from the same services.  Incorporating a solid IT infrastructure to tap into mandates paved by the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) will allow payers to enjoy the benefits of centralized information on patient care and history. Before the digital age, patient information was kept on charts. With technology, the same data can be kept in one place, for all allowed eyes to see.  This prevents redundancy in care, reduces costs and empowers all who contribute to quality patient care.

Healthcare Providers

Healthcare providers face some of biggest challenges in the industry today.  With increasing costs and patient expectations paired with higher demands for efficiency and compliance, the need to think beyond the next step is crucial.  A strong technological backbone can alleviate the pressures by automating processes to achieve expected results.  However, with changes in government policy, mandates to achieve measurable outcomes and the accelerating evolution of technology, providers can find themselves overwhelmed with technology integration and data management challenges.

CDS brings clarity to chaos by combining proven IT solutions expertise with in-depth healthcare industry knowledge to deliver an enterprise worthy of tomorrow, today.

Compliance: as regulations change, we help you evolve.  HIPAA 5010, ICD-10 and the Meaningful Use mandate affect enterprises and their components: people, processes and technology. We accelerate the transition smoothly, while reducing risk and cost.

Consumerism: Consumer-centric business models define competitiveness. Consumers want personalized products and services with increased information transparency.  They want to know exactly what they are getting. The transition to patient-centric operations requires cohesive IT integration for seamless interaction between patients and providers.

Cost-reduction: Providers are challenged with increased patient expectations paired with higher costs. With IT solutions, providers can leverage enterprises to streamline day-to-day operations, minimize costs and increase quality of care.  Allowing IT to manage data-related aspects of this business frees up providers to take better care of their patients.

Preventive care: The shift from curing to preventing dominates the healthcare industry. Consumers are looking for more ways to stay healthy and keep fit. Providers can benefit from this by becoming partners in this plan with wellness, prevention, and early detection programs. Major players in this realm are social media, bioinformatics and analytics, all allowing consumers to create profiles, set goals and monitor progress. Collected information can then be shared with providers to make the program more cohesive and productive.
