IT management and healthcare professionals across the country are ramping up projects to create their ICD-10 plan as the December 13, 2013 deadline date nears. Everyone is facing common challenges of budget, bandwidth, staffing, training and of course, technical issues.

We found this pertinent information on Healthcare Informatics in their article, “Ramping Up.” Though certainly daunting, this project can be managed well if you choose the right professional to work with through the bumps. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine assisted indexing system and specialists 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.

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.
