Technology Tools to Facilitate the ICD-10 Transition
January 11, 2012, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Tom Foley, Principal, and Brian Lee, Manager, Deloitte Consulting LLP. With the CMS mandate for the adoption of the ICD-10 code set, healthcare provider organizations face many challenges including decreases in coder productivity and decision support processes. Many automated tools such as Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) and “cross walk” applications are available to assist with the transition to the ICD-10 code set. These applications should be considered with the development of business and technical work flows such as dual processing of ICD-9 and ICD-10 code sets and the realization of any early adoption strategy. As the benefits of CAC and “cross walk” tools gain increasing attention, many organizations are working to leverage their benefits as well as understand the business and technical challenges to implement them as part of an overall remediation strategy. Tom and Brian share their experiences with CAC and “cross walk” applications and highlights their core functionalities, as well as challenges healthcare provider organizations face with implementation.
