One of the biggest challenges facing the healthcare industry, in addition to the ICD-10 transition, is coordination among their many business partners. Providers, payers, and vendors all need to be on the same page at the same point, and that point is today.

October 1st is the day when all providers must start using a much larger coding system to more specifically describe your visit and treatment. Currently, the ICD-9 coding classification has roughly 14,000 codes to designate a diagnosis. With ICD-10, there is now almost 70,000 diagnosis codes.

Access Integrity understands those challenges and offers a web-based solution for medical transaction processing that seamlessly searches, analyzes, and verifies EHRs, procedure notes, and submission forms simultaneously and validates claims as part of the transaction workflow prior to submission. This product is for medical providers who want to make sure their medical claims are always correct and compliant, which is key for financial sustainability.
