Approaching ICD-10 adoption is generating important imperatives. In the first part of our new Talk Ten Tuesdays series, “Coming Down to the Wire,” we will examine issues crucial to the implementation of ICD-10.
First and foremost will be ICD-10 coding quality. How will coding quality and productivity impact your facility? If you’re using external contract coding services — on-site or off-site — what assurances do you have that your vendors have done their due diligence in preparing their vendor staffs for ICD-10?
We’ll have three reports on quality-checked coding on the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays. Nationally recognized coding authority Gloryanne Bryant, past president of the California Health Information Association, will ask tough questions about vendor readiness. Rhonda Buckholtz, AAPC’s vice president of ICD-10 education and training, will explain how her association is preparing coders for ICD-10. And Dr. Anonymous, a former employee with an offshore coding vendor who wishes to remain anonymous, will provide a chilling scenario of lessons to be learned from contract vendors.
Talk Ten Tuesdays’ legislative analyst Rhonda Taller, a member of the HIMSS ICD-10 Task Force, checks in with the latest news from Capitol Hill.
And finally, former hospital CFO Greg Adams, chief strategy officer for Panacea Healthcare Solutions, will return with his timely “Follow the Money” segment.
All this and more will be coming your way on Talk Ten Tuesdays, Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 10 a.m. ET.
