ICD-10 Implementation Strategies: New Employees
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.
Make sure you are paying attention to new employees in your practice. Bring them up to speed to the rest of the staff regarding ICD-10 implementation. Copies of any prior ICD-10 trainings should be given to them, along with any reference materials used. Share presentations that have been given on ICD-10, set them up with online training tools that your office uses to reinforce ICD-10 training. You may want a long-time employee to work with them to ensure they can raise to the level of the other employees, as quickly as possible. With some time still left, they should be able to get to your expected level of expertise before October 1, 2015. Just don’t put it off for too long: We are under 90 days left until implementation.
