The ICD-10 transition presents a significant challenge for healthcare organizations. With little time left before October 2015, it's critical to minimize financial impact, prioritize your resources to maintain coding accuracy, improve clinical documentation, increase coder productivity, and help physicians and your organization adapt to the increased specificity of ICD-10.
Key Learning Objectives
- Mitigate your financial risks by identifying high-frequency, high-cost DRG shifts by providers, institutions, payers, service lines, and specialties that could cause revenue erosion.
- Remediate your clinical and IT systems and ensure that your quality and utilization measures, longitudinal analytics, and reports are geared up to support both ICD-9 and ICD-10 data.
- Provide a list of activities you can perform after October to ensure your plan covers your physicians, coders, and any outstanding financial risks to revisit with your providers or payers.
