ICD-10 Implementation Strategies
We will be sharing a number of strategies to help your practice successfully implement ICD-10-CM. Please remember to track your progress in your ICD-10 Implementation Tracker on AAPC’s website.
As we move closer to our Oct. 1 live date, more and more places are thinking about education: physician and provider education, coder education, biller education, other staff education. There is a lot to be done in the next six months. Take advantage of opportunities when they arise.
We just finished a great national conference in Las Vegas with ICD-10 pre-conference classes and breakout sessions. There are two regional conferences later this year (Dallas in August and Chicago in September) that will also feature ICD-10 education. The upcoming national workshop in May is on teaching ICD-10 documentation to your doctor. Look to your local chapters for meetings on ICD-10, local chapter boot camps, or local chapter advanced ICD-10 one day workshops for education at a great price. CMS’ website is also a source of great information on ICD-10 with PowerPoint presentations, videos, and the Road to 10 resource. If you look around, there are many opportunities for education at reasonable prices, some even free of charge.
