With October 1 fast approaching, many providers share a concern that the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 coding holds the potential for dramatic reductions in coding productivity. Inadequate and/or under-prepared staff, insufficient documentation, and unexpected issues causing coding mistakes will cause an overall slowdown that will directly impact revenue cycle continuity. While an initial decrease in productivity may be unavoidable, the degree and duration of impact will vary depending on each provider’s preparations and resources.
We have developed a free guide intended to help you minimize these impacts — or simply serve as a double check on your ICD-10 preparations thus far.
Our guide summarizes ICD-10’s expected impacts on provider coding and documentation, and offers recommended strategies for minimizing these impacts. It includes suggestions for training, coder retention, coder recruitment, and more. Just click below to download our “Strategies for Mitigating the Impact of ICD-10 on Coding Productivity.”
