ICD-10 Monitor: Talk Ten Tuesday
ICD-10 Monitor’s Talk Ten Tuesday broadcast this week included an interview with Anita Archer, CPC, who gave an overview of her 12 key steps to a successful ICD-10 transition. She noted that the delay of ICD-10 caused many providers to stop making implementation preparations. Ms. Archer went on to explain that many of these same providers are picking things back up again now, but preparations still need to be kept simple and timely. She advocated a “divide and conquer” approach, to have individual department managers determine what changes need to be made in their area, how much training is needed, etc.
“With coordinated effort… we can actually accomplish the goal and have our providers and practices ready for this new code set,” she said.
