Product: a cloud-based analyzer of medical records to ensure correct encoding, which: provides an expert system in the form of a search engine, a fast index, and a rules engine to allow a coder to build up a sequence of codes by searching the various code lists and indices; “group”s the coded record using a government-approved “grouper” to produce a DRG code, which can then be used for hospital remuneration; allows a coder manager to distribute coding jobs (each job being a collection of patient episodes requiring coding) to coders, track their progress and balance their workload.
