“Inspirien and are working together to explore opportunities to integrate technology into the daily processes of healthcare businesses,” explains Inspirien’s Chief Innovation Officer, Kathy Freyman. “Inspirien’s customer base is primarily made up of hospitals and we are looking to learn what we can about the pain points in their facilities in order to help innovate potential new solutions. By mobilizing this group of expert medical coders, we hope to learn more about what it takes for healthcare providers to get paid for the valuable services they provide to their patients.”

“The right technology can amplify both human and process intelligence,” adds Terence Mills, CEO of and member of the Forbes Technology Council. “By working with these coders, then using technology to expand on their knowledge base we can propel advances in productivity, social interaction, and communication that profoundly changes and improves the nature of their work.”
