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 preparation and compared it to running a marathon. It may be challenging, but there are plenty of supporters and it will be worthwhile to successfully cross the finish line. Ms. Bounos noted that providers should already be in the final stages of implementation preparation.

“Consider the subject matter experts that are within your organization,” she said. “They’ll help you stay on schedule and find a training program [for] your coders. Make sure that the actual training is appropriate to the level of coding for the different staff members you have within your organization.”
