The New Year has promise of bringing health IT-related jobs to the market. With the advance of technology in general and the need for workers with expertise in ICD-10, demand will exceed the supply of talent.

We found this interesting information on iHealth Beat in their article, “A Meaningful 2012 for Health IT for Providers, Vendors and Consumers.” The ICD-10 medical code transition has certainly been a catalyst for medical coding careers. Medical coding requires specialized expertise and systems tailored to the regulatory requirements in which health care providers, hospitals, and doctors deliver their services. Training staff is a key component of the transition.

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 agging and reduce errors.
