The Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS) has released a free set of tools to aid in converting the new ICD-10 code sets. The ICD-10 PlayBook features ICD-10 report card software from Yakima, a speaker’s bureau and white papers and Web seminars from a variety of resources.

Health Data Management brought this news to our attention in their article, “HIMSS Updates its ICD-10 Tools.” Knowing the financial cost poor integration of these codes could cost healthcare providers, this additional resource package can help healthcare organizations adhere to these regulations. This 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.
