What is BenchMark KB?

In partnership with the software development experts at InterFix, AHDI has created the first application that sets universal health data quality standards and deploys them to the workstation level, integrating them into the document creation process. That means improved health data quality and improved patient care.

BenchMark KB is a patent-pending HIM knowledge base—a comprehensive information portal that brings new data standards to the medical documentation process and incorporates real-time access to best-of-class tools, databases, and associate membership to AHDI.

Benchmark KB delivers a universal quality standard for health information in a single, trusted source and includes:

  • Access to the complete medical reference library from Stedman’s in a single user interface.
  • A continuously updated national physician and dentist database (1,000,000 )
  • Quality alerts library highlight common transcription style errors, including Joint Commission dangerous abbreviations
  • AHDI Book of Style 3e in searchable format
  • Associate membership in AHDI
  • Integration with all popular transcription and EHR platforms

Why do you need BenchMark KB?

Faced with the challenges of non-standard tool sets, disparate systems and desktop environments, non-standard quality measurements, and a lack of data standards, the transcription industry has been challenged to produce consistent, high-quality patient records across the board. That's why AHDI and Interfix have created BenchMark KB. We realized we could better use technology to not only develop quality standards, but to more easily put these efficiency-driven, real-time resources at the fingertips of the MT user. And whether you are an educator, a business owner, or an independent contractor, you know a comprehensive, web-based portal that empowers MTs to be accurate, fast, and compliant is the answer to creating better quality healthcare documentation.

What are the system and software requirements for BenchMark KB Online?

BenchMark KB online is a stand-alone web service that can be used alongside any medical transcription or coding application. That means all you need is an internet connection (DSL or better recommended) with a supported, Windows-based internet browser (Internet Explorer 7.0 or newer, or FireFox 2.0 or newer). We also recommend a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 for optimum performance.
