ICD-10 Monitor: Talk Ten Tuesday

ICD-10 Monitor: Talk Ten Tuesday

Yesterday Rhonda Buckholtz, VP of ICD-10 Training at AAPC, reported on her interactions from the MGMA conference.

Describing the general feel on the ground, she relayed the following, “We’ve talked to hundreds of different practices and most have told us the same story” said Rhonda. “The coders have been trained or are scheduled to get trained shortly and they are just now beginning to engage their physicians.”

Regarding the topic of dual coding, Rhonda said, “I spoke with several groups who were actively using I-10 now with dual coding and they say it’s going very well for them.”

However, not everyone she spoke with had positive news to share. “I actually had one practice administrator that told me she hasn’t been able to do much because her vendor wasn’t ready yet” said Rhonda. “I was shocked to find out it’s one of the largest EMR vendors in the marketplace.”

Summarizing her interactions from the MGMA conference, Rhonda said, “As for the rest of the practices…I was very pleased with the progress and the engagement toward ICD-10.”

    Any chance you can share which EMR vendor is not ready?

    Many people would be shocked at the major Chicago University I work at that has not offered a bit of training or knowledge. This could be for out patient or clinic coders. The have talked about it and what they will do for years, but nothing is in place. I do not want to take on the financial responsibility to continue to do my job, in addition to the time reading and studying. I would not be sad if this were delayed, but feel bad for the people who have been provided learning tools or did it on their own to become ICD 10 trainers and proficient at !CD10, bravo to you. Hoping something changes soon!
