If you are remotely connected to the healthcare field, the term ICD-10 is not a foreign one. Front office, back office, provider, biller – whatever role you play, you know about the transition to the ICD-10 coding classification. This upgrade is massive on any scale and the shift will bump the number of codes used to classify illness for reimbursement will multiply by five.

Scripps Howard News Service brought this to our attention via The Republic’s article, “Medical: Number of diagnostic codes multiply ad nauseam.” Access Innovations’ 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.
