Medicomp Systems Hosts Quipstar, World’s Favorite HIT Quiz Show, at HIMSS12

CHANTILLY (March 27, 2012) – Medicomp Systems debuted Quipstar, World’s Favorite HIT Quiz Show, live on the show floor at HIMSS12. The interactive health information technology quiz show gave contestants an opportunity to compete for prizes using Quippe®, Medicomp’s integrated physician and nursing documentation tool, by answering questions related to new industry coding and documentation requirements such as ICD-10 and meaningful use.
Quippe is ICD-10-CM ready, satisfies meaningful use requirements, is compatible with leading EHRs, and runs on mobile devices. Powered by Medicomp’s MEDCIN® Engine, Quippe adapts to the unique clinical presentation of each patient and provides the codes needed for compliance and reimbursement.
“I liked the user interface for this.” said Dr. Chris Pavlatos, a Chicago area physician who participated in the training. “I like the ability of the MEDCIN Engine to map down to SNOMED and to ICD-10. I think that is a very attractive feature.”
According to Dave Lareau, Chief Executive Officer at Medicomp, “Quipstar gave us the opportunity to show clinicians and EHR developers how easy Quippe is to use and learn. Using the power of the MEDCIN Engine, the trainees and contestants were able to learn Quippe after a short demo and then use that knowledge in a busy environment, not unlike a clinical facility.”
In addition to cash and prizes given to contestants, Medicomp also invited three “Quip Stars” to play for a $5,000 donation to their favorite charity. Danielle Hartley, Publisher of MedTech Media played for The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, “Inga” of HIStalk played for Mobile Loaves and Fishes and Dr. Eric Fishman of EHRtv played for the Alzheimer’s Association.
Medicomp Systems will again feature Quipstar at HIMSS 13 in New Orleans, March 4-7, 2013.
