The ICD-10 implementation will be the most far-reaching change in U.S. health care to date.
The health care industry is preparing for monumental changes as it transitions toward implementing the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, also known as ICD-10. Simultaneously, the industry is transitioning toward the HIPAA 5010 transaction standard to support electronic transactions. Combined, these changes will impact every aspect of your organization’s revenue or payment cycle. Upgrading to ICD-10 will:
- Provide better data for measuring health care service quality, safety, and the efficacy of care
- Allow clinical IT systems to record far more specific and rich diagnostic information
- Boost efficiencies by helping to identify specific health conditions
Prepare now. Be ready.
The coding system conversion will affect every department across the entire health care continuum. The sooner you assess your strengths and limitations regarding ICD-10 compliance, the sooner you can allocate the resources to transition smoothly to this long-awaited new code set. The timeline is tight, but OptumInsight can help you establish your individual implementation plan and successfully transition with solutions for both the Clinical Modification (CM) and Procedure Coding System (PCS).
