To prepare for the ICD-10 and ANSI 5010 regulations, Indiana University Health (IU Health) Bloomington and Paoli Hospital are looking to McKesson’s Horizon Patient Folder electronic documentation management system to make the transition.

We found this interesting news on CMIO in their article, “McKesson assists IU Health with ICD-10, ANSI 5010 regs.” The technology helps providers transition to new billing, coding and electronic data interchange requirements while continuing to support existing transactions.

The ICD-10 classification system contains approximately five times the number of codes as ICD-9. This makes it ever more important to have your coding and tagging properly indexed. Access Innovations can help. Developer of the M.A.I. machine assisted indexing system and specialists in complex coding, tagging,  and indexing, Access Innovations 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:

  • Minimize the risk of a coding error
  • Identify inappropriate or inadvertently applied tags
  • Display a “map” of coding distributions to allow
    management to get a bird’s-eye view of the coding assignment flow.

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.
