ICD-10 IMPLEMENTATION TRAINING
The implementation of ICD-10 is more than a technical project. There are business implications of implementing ICD-10 that will impact most areas of your practice, including documentation and coding. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the agency in charge of enforcing compliance with ICD-10, has identified claims processing interruptions as a high-risk possibility. Practices need to ensure they have implemented ICD-10 prior to the deadline to avoid disruptions in their cash flow and claims reimbursement.
This ICD-10 Implementation training will provide guidance about the steps needed to take and decisions needed to make to implement ICD-10. Different areas of implementation process can be introduced during the training course at the same time. Some example data can also be used to understand the coding process. Not all steps or the same course outline may be applied to every practice. Implementation process from ICD9 to ICD10 can be different for different healthcare industries.
