The ICD-10 coding classification conversion deadline has been set, again. Now it is time for healthcare providers to determine their game plan. During this year’s AHIMA  conference in Chicago on September 30 – October 3,  vendors will be on hand to help.

This interesting information was found in the San Francisco Chronicle in their article, “Addressing ICD-10 Plans that Don’t Fit—Jvion Attends AHIMA 2012.” Understanding the financial risks involved is important for providers. Though certainly daunting, this project can be managed well if you choose the right professional to work with through the bumps. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system and specialists 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.

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.
