The ICD-10 coding transition has many in the healthcare business concerned. At the top of that list of concerns is how the new coding classifications will affect reimbursements.

Government Health IT brought this topic to our attention in their article, “ICD-10 Training: Staff will need to translate edits.” The new ICD-10 coding classification system that was supposed to go into effect in October 2013, and has been delayed until October 2014, has five times the number of codes than the current ICD-9 does.

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.
