Now that there is a firm deadline in place, it is time to start training to meet the October 2014 coding classification transition goal. Considering there will be five times the number of diagnostic codes, the training should be comprehensive and complete.
This topic was brought to our attention by Fierce Practice Management in their article, “New ICD-10 start date doesn’t stall practice training, upgrades.” Developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system and specialists in complex coding, tagging, and indexing, Access Innovations 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:
- 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.
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.
