Testimonial

“Our coders pride themselves on being accurate and efficient. We don’t see those as trade-offs. TurboGrouper allows us to find the right codes quickly and the HAC flag is crucial to our new HAC management workflow.  Having used the sister product TurboCoder for years, we knew that we could rely on TurboGrouper for accuracy and speed, and we were not disappointed.”

Laura Royce, HIS Manager at St Vincent’s Private Hospital Melbourne

Maximise Clinical Coding & Grouping Productivity and Valuable Healthcare Resources

TurboGrouper uses advanced proprietary software technology to redefine productivity by providing the highest levels of accuracy and speed.

Optimise Reimbursement while Slashing Software Costs

Trust TurboGrouper

Since the introduction of Activity Based Funding (ABF), where a hospital’s funding is dictated by the diseases and interventions of patients treated, their ability to code and group clinical records accurately and efficiently is essential.

At EIS, we believe that productivity equals accuracy plus speed. So when we developed TurboGrouper we did so on the trusted foundation of the proven, market-leading TurboCoder clinical coding productivity solution – renowned for its accuracy and relied upon by most leading hospitals as the ‘gold standard’ to validate the code selection and pathways assigned by other brands of coding and grouping software.

Powered by the Award-Winning eComPress Technology, TurboGrouper is the fastest, most accurate and most cost-effective ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS coding and AR-DRG grouping solution available to optimise your valuable healthcare resources. TurboGrouper gives clinical coders all the necessary information to select diagnosis and intervention codes accurately and generate the correct DRG first time every time.

Applicable for Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Ireland and all other countries licensed to use ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS and the AR-DRG.

Fast, Accurate, Cost Effective Clinical Coding & Grouping!

CodeSuggest™

Intelligently suggests diagnosis and intervention codes based on more than a million Australian episodes. Verify each if necessary with instant access to the classifications, EasyView Coding Rules and all levels of Includes/Excludes notes so you correctly select all the appropriate codes ‘first time every time’. Instantly view the AR-DRGs and reimbursement calculations, and the correct coding pathway while coding.

CodeSuggest™

  • Slash coding and grouping time while ensuring absolute coding integrity
  • Clinical coders retain complete control of code selection
  • Suggested codes serve as prompts for coders to examine the medical record to help ensure the hospital is reimbursed fully for the care and services provided

Cost Effective Licensing

A flexible and affordable Concurrent User subscription model based on your concurrent user numbers, not your hospital’s separations, so you have full cost transparency.

Cost Effective Licensing

  • Slash your annual subscription costs with most hospitals saving tens, or hundreds, of thousands of dollars per year
  • Budget your expenditure with confidence and have peace of mind about your annual software expenditure
  • Secure your hospital’s separations information, protecting patient, hospital and payer privacy

HAC Flags and Calculator

Potential Hospital-Acquired Complications (HAC) and their cost implications visible while coding.

HAC Flags and Calculator

  • Prompt coders to ensure the correct Condition Onset Flag is selected so that hospital reimbursement optimally reflects the medical record
  • HAC information is sent back to the PAS to facilitate care quality and patient safety improvement initiatives

AR-DRG MultiVersion Select

Interactive, real-time AR-DRG generation in any Version while coding, with the correct coding pathway always displayed.

AR-DRG MultiVersion Select

  • See the DRG change as you code
  • Change the Principal Diagnosis, the DRG changes instantly
  • Click on a code or DRG and see them immediately in the Classifications to confirm your selection
  • Instant access to all the AR-DRG versions without exiting the program
  • Save time with complete confidence
