Irvine, CA – StrataCare, LLC, recently announced the latest version of StrataWare® with expanded financial controls and efficiency tools for workers’ compensation payers.
StrataWare 7.01 includes a major enhancement with direct access to Medical Disability Guides (MDG) from bill review entry and viewing screens, as well as access from the AdjusterPortal™ environment. The MDG feature now makes available both Work Loss Data Institute’s® Official Disability Guidelines™ (ODG) and American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM®) Practice Guidelines. This seamless integration and visibility with direct linking to guide citations boosts productivity and supports treatment decisions.
Additional updates include expanded state reporting capabilities and infrastructure related to two key initiatives. First, North Carolina is deploying an electronic state reporting program centered on the latest IAIABC 2.0 data layouts and data capture validation rules. StrataWare will be compliant and ready for submissions with the state by the March 1, 2014 deadline. Second, substantial changes are in place to support ICD-10 coding to meet the federal implementation date of October 2014. Those ICD-10 software enhancements include data capture infrastructure, associated workflow process, and business rules.
“We continue to invest in our diligent and proactive approach to software development to maintain StrataWare as a highly compliant and robust workers’ compensation solution,” said Skip Creasey, president and chief operating officer.
