Millennium HealthCare has appointed Marc Sherman, MD to the Company Advisory Board. Dr. Sherman has an impressive resume including his current position as the Medical Director of Heartbeat Medical PC, one of the largest cardiology groups in the New York area.

MarketWatch brought this news to our attention in their article, “Millennium HealthCare Appoints Marc Sherman, MD to Company Advisory Board.” Hopefully his extensive background and experience will help him guide Millennium as they seek to offer services for all aspects of medical billing along with medical diagnosis and procedure coding and training for ICD-10. The October 2013 deadline for the ICD-10 transition is looming over every healthcare provider as they scramble to provide training and make the necessary technology transitions.

The new ICD-10 classification system contains approximately five times the number of codes as ICD-9. This will make it ever more important to break down walls and form a team for proper reimbursement. Access Innovations’s M.A.I. machine assisted indexing system and specialists in complex coding, tagging, and indexing can minimize the risk of coding errors with proper training and quality assurance. 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.
