In the healthcare world, the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 is one of the most impactful change to a healthcare provider’s business. With the dramatic increase in codes from roughly 18,000 to more than 140,000, processes for scheduling, care delivery, diagnostics, billing, and analytics will all change in one way or another.

Digital Journal brought this news to our attention in their article, “The Impact of ICD-10 on Healthcare Providers’ Revenue Cycles – An Edifecs Webinar.” In the end, everyone is worried about revenue and how much their return on investment for all this new software, staff training and time spent will be.

A complimentary webinar is being offered to provide insight into how providers can achieve revenue neutrality through this migration. Healthcare technology experts Deepak Sadagopan and Herb Larsen will host the webinar Thursday, September 15, 2011. Click here for registration and more details.
