The October 1st ICD-10 deadline is approaching. Is your medical practice ready?
Healthcare organizations that fail testament to ICD-10 IT requirements will risk reimbursement delays, increased claim rejections, and reduced reimbursement due to incorrect or incomplete documentation.

- How to inventory existing technology and ensure it meets ICD-10 standards
- How do popular ICD-10 codes function and how to adjust to all the information necessary in medical reporting
- How to plan for ICD-10 implementation: the time, finances and staff required for successful HIT utilization
- How healthcare organizations can reap countless financial, medical, social and political benefits by meeting ICD-10 criteria early
