Healthcare organizations continue to seek out ways to be more financially independent and address challenges brought on by healthcare reform, coding classification changes and the economy. Many facilities are seeing a merge or partnership as the resolution.

Becker’s Hospital Review brought this information to our attention in their article, “Not a Merger, Not an Acquisition: When and Why Strategic Partnerships Make Sense.” The new ICD-10 medical coding classification system bring with it many concerns about cash flow challenges and staff training. Knowing the financial cost poor integration of these codes could cost healthcare providers, we know the pressure they are under. This is something that requires specialized expertise and systems tailored to regulatory requirements. 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.
