Like a train pulling out of the station, ICD-10 is picking up speed as it barrels toward the Oct. 1, 2015 compliance date. In fact, the closer we get, the faster the speed. Medicare’s ICD-10 end-to-end testing begins on Monday, April 27. With comments on last month’s acknowledgement testing during the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays will be Diane Kovach, director of CMS’s provider billing group.
For those providers struggling to get started with end-to-end testing, Tom Parnon with QualiTest will offer a possible solution: “risk-based testing” for ICD-10. Navicure’s Ken Bradley will return with the first installment of his three part series on top trends and challenges faced by today’s healthcare professionals and how these trends will be impacted by ICD-10.
Speaking of trends, Ralph Weubker, MD, the chief medical officer for Executive Health Resources (EHR), will report on the startling results of a recent EHR/American Hospital Association survey — the bottom line being that 95 percent of respondents said physicians need to improve their documentation.
No stranger to physician documentation is Joe Nichols, MD, principal of Health Data Consulting. Dr. Nichols will offer sage advice to his fellow physicians in our ongoing feature “Doc2Doc.”
Additionally, Greg Adams with Panacea Healthcare Solutions will present another installment of his popular segment “Follow the Money.”
And Rhonda Buckholtz, the vice president of ICD-10 training and education for AAPC, will debunk five recurring myths that some folks have perpetuated rationalizing why they’ve yet to begin their implementation efforts.
All this and more will be coming your way on Talk Ten Tuesdays, Tuesday, April 28 at 10 a.m. EST, as we monitor the industry picking up speed on the road to ICD-10 adoption.
