The ICD-10 transition affects every person in your practice or organization. This isn’t a time to surprise them with details.

Government Health IT brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Don’t start ICD-10 implementation until you warn the staff it’s coming.” It is important to explain to your staff that the ICD-10 transition means massive change and then assure them you are prepared to provide the necessary training.

Medical coding requires specialized expertise and systems tailored to the regulatory requirements in which health care providers, hospitals, and doctors deliver their services. Training is very important. That is why Access Innovations, Inc. provides training to a client’s staff and then offers quality assurance and validation services that can:

  • Minimize the risk of a coding error
  • Identify inappropriate or inadvertently applied tags
  • Display a “map” of coding distributions to allow management to get a bird’s-eye view of the coding assignment flow.
