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 October 1 live date, it is important to keep in close touch with your vendors. See what type of services they offer to assist in the transition to ICD-10. If you need upgrades to your system, or training on new software or updates, you should be on your vendor’s calendar to ensure you can obtain training in your timeline. Your practice may need multiple training sessions depending on what types of systems are used. Leave enough for training follow ups, if necessary, to ensure retention of new processes. Call your vendors and see what type of services they offer. Take a look at your contracts and see what is included in your service agreement. You may be surprised by what the vendor may be able to do for you.
