Many have wondered if they should wait and see what the decision is for a new ICD-10 transition. However, a true leader in healthcare won’t limit objectives to just meeting a deadline, but will rather concentrate on improving the process of clinical documentation and quality of care.

This interesting concept was found in an article on 4-traders, titled “Xerox Corporation : Seizing the Opportunity in the ICD-10 Delay.” Medical coding requires specialized expertise and systems tailored to the regulatory requirements in which health care providers, hospitals, and doctors deliver their services. Access Innovations, Inc., a leader in data integrity and content creation, has announced the Access Innovations Integrity Initiative (AI³), to provide tools and services for quality assurance and validation of medical coding. The system can be used to quickly and accurately validate medical coding or to locate errors in existing documentation. The cost savings are potentially huge.

The Access Innovations Integrity Initiative is not just for physicians, hospitals, and their data service providers. It also includes tools that give auditors and insurers the information management tools they need to quickly identify areas of noncompliance or suspicious activity.
