ICD-10 Monitor: Talk Ten Tuesday
This week’s Talk Ten Tuesday podcast featured AAPC’s Maria Bounos, RN, MPM, CPC-H, who spoke about ICD-10 implementation best practices and common concerns. Ms. Bounos pointed out how important it is for each organization to have a focused approach and continually analyze the current procedures to evaluate what’s working and what’s not working. She also recommended several best practices, including:
- Using the resources you already have (certified coders, ICD-10 champions, practice managers, etc.)
- Maintaining auditing and monitoring programs that you already have in place to track results and investigate findings
- Assessing your financial and utilization footprint in each area of your organization
