Should your practice hire an ICD-10 coder?
from By Brooke Andrus
The switch to ICD-10 will trigger a monumental shift in the way medical practitioners code patient diagnoses. The result is increased specificity in coding, but all that slick, souped-up data comes at a cost — time. And as a rehab therapist, you don't have a lot of that to spare. So rather than trying to manage the transition — and master a code set with five times more codes than the library you're used to — all by yourself, you might want to consider calling in some backup in the form of an ICD-10 coder.
