Acurity and Conversion Technologies International Sign Three‑Year Contract Extension

Acurity is pleased to announce the extension of its group purchasing agreement (GNYHA-NBI-037) with CTI through July 15, 2021. CTI—a contracted supplier since 2009—is a leading provider of medical record scanning, abstraction, and related services. CTI has more than 25 years’ experience in the healthcare field, and its document management solutions help healthcare organizations reduce costs, increase productivity, and ensure regulatory compliance.

Services offered by CTI include

    • on- and off-site scanning of medical records and a wide array of other documents that healthcare organizations are required to retain (e.g., medical staff credentialing, human resources, occupational health, legal, and finance/accounting files);
    • entering clinical information (e.g., active problem list, past medical and surgical history, allergies, immunizations, active medication list, and family and social history) into a facility’s electronic medical/health record (EMR/EHR) system;
    • converting digitized files or images to a format compatible with an organization’s EMR/EHR system, practice management software, or a document retrieval system; and
    • automating the accounts payable invoice receiving and capture process with proprietary technology that can interface with an organization’s existing financial or enterprise resource planning system. This technology receives invoices from suppliers in paper or electronic form (e.g., PDF, TIFF, JPG, Excel, and Word) and scans, indexes, and stores them on an essentially real-time basis with nearly 100% capture accuracy.

CTI has particular expertise in addressing challenges related to the transition from paper to electronic records. Such challenges include hybrid medical records, incomplete charts, multiple medical record legacy systems, documentation and coding backlog, and the inability to populate historical patient data into the EMR/EHR. CTI’s services in this area help facilitate the successful transition to, and ongoing maintenance of, an EMR/EHR.

Under the Acurity/CTI agreement, all GNYHA and Acurity members have access to discounted rates of a minimum of 20% off of CTI’s standard pricing.
