Many believe that one of the biggest challenges currently facing the health IT industry is the coding classification transition to ICD-10. Training staff, integrating data, and preparing for financial impact has consumed the healthcare professionals and will continue to do so until implementation in October 2014. Fierce Health IT brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Data standards, ICD-10 among healthcare’s biggest hurdles.”

These are tough times in the healthcare industry. One solution for this particular challenge is machine-assisted indexing, like that provided through Access Integrity. The organization can provide training and offer quality assurance services. Access Integrity is fully ANSI compliant and can help reduce costs in the workflow.
