In the continual race to beat the deadline of the ICD 10-transition has various companies scrambling for assistance. Elsevier/MC Strategies will be working with Care Communications to develop an ICD-10 transition resource, and Anthelio has formed a strategic partnership with MedQuist Holdings. Health insurance giant, Humana is incorporating Interactions Corporation’s voice portal technology into its Medicare Part D benefits enrollment program.

This information was found on iHealth Beat in their article, “Health IT Business News Roundup for the Week of October 7, 2011.” With only two years left to the transition deadline, health care providers are creating ICD-10 budgets and assessing training needs for staff.

Medical coding requires specialized expertise and systems tailored to the regulatory requirements in which health care providers, hospitals, and doctors deliver their services. 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.
