  • 1. What does 2014 bring to the healthcare industry? We track the challenges ahead..
  • 2. 2014 is going to be a year filled with challenges for healthcare providers! • Instead of welcoming 2014 with anticipation and hope, healthcare providers are greeting the New Year with dread. • 2014 is going to be the year of change. • From transitioning to a new code set to working towards MU2, there is a lot on the plate. • What are the biggest challenges of 2014? Here is a quick snapshot…
  • 3. The year of federal mandates… • This could be the year of opportunities or penalties, depending on how good practices are at rolling with the punches. • ICD10 will come into effect on Oct 1st. • Formulating a MU2 plan and fast tracking compliance efforts should be the top most concern of all medical practices.
  • 4. It is going to be tougher than ever to get paid! • Physicians face the risk of being unceremoniously dropped from insurance plans if they don’t adhere to strict quality metrics. • Improvising and documenting quality of care is another major challenge facing physicians.
  • 5. Newer technologies… • Health information is going mobile. • There are zillions of applications and softwares being exclusively developed for doctors. • Though some like sharing healthcare information through smartphones and patient portals can help physicians save on time. • The influx of healthcare apps can pressurize physicians to adapt to change whether they like it or not.
  • 6. Interoperable systems will have to be in place! • It is time for doctors to determine how interoperable their EHRs are. • Seamless health information exchange between two systems is now more important than ever. • Physicians should insist on more interoperable systems that can make, sending and receiving information and communicating with another physician, a lot easier.
  • 7. Documentation hassles… • Medical practices will have to submit and maintain pristine medical documentation in order to get paid. • To ensure medical documentation is accurate and updated it is important for practices to hire skilled scribes or transcribers.
