With the October 2014 date for ICD-10 compliance looming, many healthcare providers are fearful they will need to memorize each and every one of the 68,000 new medical codes to be in compliance. This interesting information was found on Modern Medicine in their article, “ICD-10 transition will require less training, more planning for physicians.”

Staff training is key to making this transition successfully. Well prepared and trained staff come with support.

Access Innovations, Inc. 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.
