Documentation will become critical
One of the biggest problems following the October 1, 2015, implementation date will be fulfilling documentation requirements necessary to support the specificity required for ICD-10. Based on thousands of ICD-10 assessments, only 63 percent of today’s documentation is ready for transitioning to the new diagnosis code set. It is a concern that documentation has been forgotten among the other objectives of implementation.
Accurate coding and proper payment will not be possible without clinical documentation improvement. A behavioral change in documentation habits for most providers is necessary, and time is of the essence.
An ICD-10 assessment will:
- Evaluate your current documentation in preparation for ICD-10.
- Identify the deficiencies and education needed to improve.
- Avoid denied or un-billable claims and reduce the risk of interruption in revenue.
