After all of the noise that was made around the move to ICD-10, I’m now talking to more and more people about what impact the switch to ICD-10 has had on their organizations. The reality for many organizations is they don’t really know what the new normal is under ICD-10. So, they’ve had a hard time evaluating if their ICD-10 work has been going well or not.
With this in mind, I was excited to talk with Eileen Dano Tkacik, Director of Operations & Information Technology at AVIANCE Suite Inc, about a survey they did that looked at ICD-10 accuracy and productivity. Learn more about the results of this survey in the video below and review the full survey results. Also, check out their 2017 ICD-10 coding contest which includes $5000 in prizes and begins July 17, 2017.
Eileen is so right that the transition to ICD-10 definitely sucked up people’s time and the QA process suffered. I hope now that ICD-10 has been around for almost 2 years that more efforts will go back to QA. We’re going to need to given the ICD-10 accuracy results from their survey.
