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.

With more than 68,000 ICD-10 codes replacing approximately 14,000 ICD-9 codes, current HIT equipment may not be optimized to handle all the specific clinical information and EHR data mandated by ICD-10. Many of the top questions about implementation are addressed in this guide, such as:

  • 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

Download this white paper in order to be prepared for ICD-10 implementation to ultimately improve clinical care, patient health, and organization profitability.
