Important Deadline For All Healthcare Organizations!

ICD-10You Must Comply With ICD-10 By October 1st, 2014.

The ICD-9 code sets that are currently being used to report inpatient procedures and medical diagnoses have been replaced by ICD-10 code sets. Transition to ICD-10 is mandatory for all healthcare organizations and must be done by on October 1st, 2014.

The transition to ICD-10 is required for everyone covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA).

While preparing for ICD-10 can be difficult and time-consuming, your organization will benefit from the transition in four major ways, with:

  • Improved outbreak data/information and disease reporting.
  • Data to assess quality standards, mandates, compliance, and patient-safety goals.
  • Comprehensive data mining capabilities for improved analysis of diagnosis, prevention, and treatment efficacy.
  • Increased efficiency in the billing and reimbursement process, more accurate claims, and less denials and underpayments.

ICD-10’s complex code structures require changes in electronic health records, reporting packages, billing systems, and other analytical systems.

What Your Healthcare Organization Must Do

Chances are, some of your systems will require major upgrades or replacement to be compliant with ICD-10. The impact of moving to the ICD-10 code set is substantial.

It’s critical to conduct a comprehensive Technology Impact Assessment to determine what systems and databases contain ICD-9 data, and to develop a plan to move them to ICD-10.  We can help.

Clients Feedback

After switching to Pulse, we were pleased to know that our IT service bills were consistent and fixed fee each month. This part was huge because finally we could plan and budget for our IT service expenses. We also appreciated the fact that Pulse would dispatch experienced technicians based on the issue at hand resulting in faster resolution of problems that arose. One of the most valuable parts of working with Pulse is that I know there will be a quick and appropriate resolution to any issue that we experience. This process gives me peace of mind because like most small businesses, we need quick and efficient responses to any and every system issue we may face. Pulse’s consistency and dependability in service is unparalleled to providers we’ve had in the past.
