Put your ICD-10 transition in fast-forward
from Becker's Hospital Review
With the deadline for ICD-10 compliance now set for Oct. 1, 2014, it's good to reflect back on why we as an industry are transitioning to ICD-10 in the first place. The greater specificity levels within clinical documentation will provide an improved understanding of health conditions and impact patient outcomes. ICD-10 will also provide more granular data for disease management worldwide and reduce additional documentation that is needed at the time of reimbursement. At the end of the day though, this change links directly back to patient care.
