Healthcare providers are looking for ways to streamline the coding process during the ICD-10 coding classification system. The challenge of the transition includes the number of codes in the new ICD-10 system – five times the number of codes in the prior set.

PhysBizTech brought this news to our attention in their article, “Look to automated coding tools to  alleviate ICD-10 challenges.” Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system and specializing in complex coding, tagging, and indexing, provides a range of services that deliver tag integrity. Access Innovations provides training to a client’s staff and then offers quality assurance and validation services that can assist in minimizing the risk of a coding error and identify inappropriately applied tags.

Many widely used tagging systems lack a 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. For more information, contact Access Innovations.
