The highway to ICD-10 adoption is becoming littered with distracting road hazards. First, H.R. 2126, a bill introduced by U.S. Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas), received endorsement by the American Medical Association, an action that made headline news. And this came on the heels of the introduction of H.R. 2247, legislation that would require a mandatory 18-month transition testing period immediately following the Oct. 1 ICD-10 compliance date. Then, last week the Heritage Foundation, as it did in 2014, came out publicly against ICD-10.
For some, doubt and confusion persist, while others are moving steadily ahead. On the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, prominent healthcare consultant Deb Grider, who has been analyzing the Heritage Foundation white paper, will join the broadcast with a critical assessment while refuting many of its arguments.
Also last week, American mathematician and Nobel Prize winner John Forbes Nash, Jr. and his wife were killed in an automobile crash. Nash, 86, the inspiration for the Academy Award-winning movie “A Beautiful Mind,” was in partial recovery from schizophrenia.
We’ll have two reports: Kathy Pride with Panacea Healthcare Solutions will discuss coding schizophrenia in ICD-10, while nationally renowned psychiatrist H. Steven Moffic, MD, will join the broadcast to explain the psychiatric ramifications of this chronic brain disorder that affects 1 percent of the American population, according to federal government.
Andres Jimenez, MD, founder and CEO of ImplementHIT, will handle our Talk Ten Tuesdays segment “Doc2Doc,” and Greg Adams, former hospital CFO, will continue with his popular ICD-10 segment, “Follow the Money.”
All this and more will be coming your way on Talk Ten Tuesdays, Tuesday, June 2 at 10 a.m. ET.
