If you look at the calendar and you rely on ICD coding, it is easy to see we are two years away from the much dreaded deadline for the ICD-10 implementation. Where are you in your plan for preparation and implementation?

This interesting and relevant topic was brought to our attention by Phys Biz Tech in their article, “It’s October: Where are you in your ICD-10 transition plans?” The complexity of the new coding system can be a challenge and prohibit progress.

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.
