Quite possibly, the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 represents one of the most wide-ranging impacts to a healthcare provider’s business. Everything they do will change in some form or fashion. What will take the biggest hit is probably their revenue.

PR Web brought this information to our attention in their article, “The Impact of ICD-10 on Healthcare Providers’ Revenue Cycles – An Edifecs Webinar.” Revenue is one of the top priorities of provider organizations as they plan for the ICD-10 transition. Medical coding and ensuring its accuracy is something that requires specialized expertise and systems tailored to regulatory requirements. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine assisted indexing system and specializing in complex coding, tagging, and indexing, provides a range of services that deliver tag integrity. Access Innovations provides training to a client’s staff and then offers quality assurance and validation services that can assist in minimizing the risk of a coding error and identify inappropriately applied tags.

Many widely used tagging systems lack the user friendly interface and may not implement a rigorous ANSI compliant coding subsystem. Access Innovations’ solutions are ANSI compliant and implement state-of-the-art technology to speed tagging and reduce errors. For more information, contact Access Innovations.
