Computer  assisted indexing can be a huge help in building a solid information architecture. We know that. We live that. However, it doesn’t solve all the problems. You still need solid medical coding training to face the challenges that will come with the ICD-10 coding classification transition.

Becker’s ASC Review brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Computer-Assisted Coding Will Not Solve All ICD-10 Difficulties.” Medical coding requires specialized expertise and systems tailored to the regulatory requirements in which health care providers, hospitals, and doctors deliver their services. Access Innovations, Inc., a leader in data integrity and content creation, offers tools and services for quality assurance and validation of medical coding. The cost savings are potentially huge.
