How is the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 impacting quality measures being collected and reported to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and other reporting programs and entities? How is this issue likely to impact quality scores and reimbursement?
During the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, Vicky Mahn-DiNicola, vice president of research and market insights at Midas+ Xerox, will explain why hospitals need to understand that ICD-10 will impact quality measures in ways that will be felt for many years from now – even as ICD-10 coding practices evolve.
President Obama is expected to ask Congress for $1.1 billion to fight prescription opioid abuse and heroin use. Kim Carr, director of clinical documentation for HRS, will join the broadcast to follow-up on her story in last week’s ICD10monitor on this subject. For a physician’s perspective on this developing story we have asked the vice president of Accretive Physician Advisory Services Ronald Hirsch to share his reaction to both the President’s request and the drug addiction crisis.
Also making news this week was an announcement by AppRev’s president and chief executive officer, Seth Avery, that his company has developed a metrics study for a "look back" on the first quarter of ICD-10 implementation. The study will compare the last three months under ICD-9 to the first three months under ICD-10. Mr. Avery will be a guest on the broadcast.
Also on Tuesday’s broadcast will be Talk Ten Tuesdays National Correspondent Laurie Johnson, Panacea Healthcare Solutions’ director of health information management (HIM) consulting services. She will be reporting on headline news — the continuing drama currently playing out across the western hemisphere and the havoc being caused by the Zika virus. Health officials in Texas have confirmed the first case of Zika being sexually transmitted.
Nationally recognized Joseph C. Nichols, MD, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with a long history in health information technology, also will return to Talk Ten Tuesdays to discuss ICD-10 from a physician’s perspective.
All this and more will be coming your way during the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. ET.
