In the dazzling desert oasis of Las Vegas, the Medical Management Group (MGMA) will be well into the first day of a four-day annual conference starting on Sunday when legendary Hall of Fame football coach Lou Holtz takes to the podium. Football makes for a good analogy for physicians as it pertains to their adoption of ICD-10. With the compliance date of October 2015, there are now some 340 days remaining on the clock, so it’s game time. Actually, it’s late in the second half in a tie game.
So, what’s the MGMA doing to help physicians? We asked Andres Jimenez, MD, founder and CEO of ImplementHIT, to be our Talk Ten Tuesdays correspondent on Tuesday. He’ll be reporting live from the conference floor with a midfield view of all the action.
We’ll continue with our new segment titled “Doc2Doc.” Anthony F. Oliva, the national medical director for J.A. Thomas & Associates (now Nuance), will speak to fellow physicians about ICD-10 adoption.
The Healthcare Billing and Management Association also just completed an analysis of a recent (and revealing) survey of its members. Holly Louie, the ICD-10 committee chair for the association, will have an exclusive report on the survey findings.
How prepared is your facility financially when it comes to ICD-10 implementation? Greg Adams, former national chair of HFMA, also will continue with his popular segment, “ICD-10: Follow the Money.” Greg is the current president of the consulting division at Panacea Healthcare Solutions.
And finally, Rhonda Buckholtz, vice president of ICD-10 education and training for AAPC, will report on how providers will benefit from the new codes for patients with chronic and recurrent conditions as well as laterality. Buckholtz will be speaking on the same subject Tuesday afternoon during a CMS stakeholders’ national conference call.
All this and more is coming your way on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 10 a.m. EST as we focus on progress being made with the implementation of ICD-10.
Talk Ten Tuesdays. More than just talk.™
