Addressing your coding transition needs
One of the many anticipated health care reform initiatives is the national health care system's transition from ICD 9 to ICD 10 coding sets for diagnosis and inpatient procedure coding. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has initiated this significant change to improve patient care, patient care reporting, diagnosis, billing and reimbursement, while also supporting the reduction of health care costs. ICD 10 CM/PCS (International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition, Clinical Modification/Procedure Coding System) currently is scheduled to become effective October 2015; however, organizations should seek ICD 10 consulting and act now to implement early adopter strategies.
Learn about areas to assess and improve to ensure ICD-10 coding conversion optimization.
