The requirement to use the ICD-10 coding system takes effect Oct. 1, 2014. If your practice hasn’t developed an implementation plan, the time to start is now. The transition to a new coding system will be the most challenging initiative yet since the inception of medical coding. Preparation is more than learning the new code set and upgrading office technology. TMA will be offering a variety of training opportunities including live seminars, hands-on workshops, live and on-demand webinars, and software. To get started, watch the video below, and find more short videos covering Q&A’s on a variety of ICD-10 aspects in the ICD-10 Video Vault.
The Complete ICD-10 Implementation Solution walks your practice through every aspect of preparation including policies, procedures, processes, relationships with other organizations, and even IT. Your transition plan is laid out on an easy-to-follow timeline that allows you to assign specific tasks to staff members and quickly track your practice’s progress. Even after the ICD-10 transition date has passed, this toolkit remains invaluable. You will get payer-by-payer analytics that make it easy to compare post-transition revenue with previous years, spot trouble areas, and address any payer issues.
