CHANTILLY, Va., Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Medicomp Systems will premiere Quipstar, World’s Favorite HIT Quiz Show, on Tuesday, February 21 at HIMSS12. The interactive health information technology quiz show will run February 21 through 23 at Medicomp’s exhibit, booth 855. Contestants will compete for prizes using Quippe®, Medicomp’s integrated physician and nursing documentation tool, to answer questions related to new industry coding and documentation requirements such as ICD-10 and meaningful use. Everyone receiving Quippe training and seated in Quipstar’s live studio audience will also have a chance to win prizes, including free iPad2®s and other giveaways.

Each show will also feature a special guest, or “Quip Star,” who plays for a $5,000 donation to their favorite charity. Danielle Hartley, Publisher of MedTech Media will be playing for The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital for the kickoff show on Tuesday at 3:30 pm. “Inga” of HIStalk will play for Mobile Loaves and Fishes during the Wednesday show at 4 pm and Dr. Eric Fishman of EHRtv will be playing for the Alzheimer’s Association on Thursday at 11 am.

According to Dave Lareau, Chief Operations Officer at Medicomp, “Quipstar is a great way to actually put Quippe into the hands of clinicians and EHR developers so that they can see how easy to use and learn Quippe really is. We tell everyone that you can learn to use Quippe in under 20 minutes. Quipstar gives us an opportunity to prove it.”

In addition to being easy to learn and use, Quippe is ICD-10-CM ready, satisfies meaningful use requirements, is compatible with most EHRs, and runs on most mobile devices. It is powered by Medicomp’s MEDCIN® Engine, which adapts to the unique clinical presentation of each patient and provides all of the codes needed for compliance and reimbursement.

Lareau noted that Quipstar will enable Medicomp to show everyone that Quippe, backed by the MEDCIN Engine, addresses all documentation and compliance challenges while providing the engine for connected clinical care.
