ICD-10 Impact Presentation


Published on

The transition to ICD-10 will affect several areas within your hospital, which means changes for most of your staff.

Areas include:

IT Systems Changes
Staff Education and Training
Business Process and Documentation Changes
Changes in Super-Bills Charges
Increased Documentation Costs
Cash Flow Disruptions
Reporting Changes

The ICD-10 Impacts presentation describes these changes and what they mean for your organization.

Use this presentation to educate and prepare your staff for the impacts of the new coding system so they are ready for the transition and the changes they will experience when the October 1, 2014 deadline hits.

ICD-10 Impact Presentation

  1. 1. What is ICD-10?! u  ICD-10 is a healthcare coding system implemented by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1993 to replace ICD-9, a now-outdated system for coding. u  ICD-10 is used in most countries, except the United States. u  ICD-10 is a far more robust coding system, needed to accurately describe health diagnoses and procedures with the level of detail needed in modern medicine.   •  Healthcare organizations are required by October 1, 2014, to convert from ICD-9 coding to ICD-10 in documenting diagnoses and procedures. •  Non-compliance will result in non- payment of claims.
  2. 2. " Why the Change to ICD-10?" !   u Measures the quality and safety of care u Ensures more accurate claims payments u Improves operational and strategic planning u Monitors resource utilization u Improves performance: clinical, financial and administrative u Improves research and clinical trials u  Reduces healthcare fraud and abuse u Tracks public health and risks u Enables the adoption of beneficial new technologies u Maximizes investment in IT ICD-10 provides improved data to support 21st century healthcare.  
  3. 3. Conversion to ICD-10 will impact systems and processes across your organization. Examples: §  IT systems changes §  Staff education and training §  Business process and documentation changes §  Changes in super-bills, charges §  Increased documentation costs §  Cash flow disruptions §  Reporting changes PAYORS HOSPITAL DEPARTMENTS IT VENDORS & 3RD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS Why Should You Care?! Technology People Processes
  4. 4. Most staff will be affected by, disrupted by, and/or need education on ICD-10.! u  Senior Management u  Physicians / Nurses / Clinicians u  Health information management u  IT staff and data analysts u  Quality management staff u  Patient access and registration staff u  Finance and administrative staff u  Clinical department managers u  Allied health care professionals ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?!
  5. 5. It goes beyond adding specificity to patient charts or learning a new set of codes for billing. It’s a lengthy, complex, and revolutionary transition It requires a focused, converted effort across all areas of business operations Most staff will be affected or disrupted by the code set Education and training is required Diagnosis & Procedure Codes are the foundation of healthcare. The transition to ICD-10 diagnosis and procedure codes is the most profound change our industry has ever faced. ICD-9-CM (Diagnosis) 5 characters = 14,000 codes ICD-9-CM (Procedure) 5 characters = 4,000 codes ICD-10-CM (Diagnosis) 7 characters = 68,000 codes ICD-10-PCS (In patient) 7 characters = 72,000 codes ICD-10 is More Than it Seems!
  6. 6.   u In ICD-10, it’s not just two more characters. It’s a completely new construct that defines what each character or group of characters represents in assigning a diagnosis. u An almost 5-fold increase in the number of diagnosis codes to choose from. u An almost 20-fold increase in the number of procedure codes to choose from. u ICD-9 codes exists in numerous locations in the organization. What Makes This Coding System " So Challenging?! It is estimated that the average size hospital may have 50 - 75 IT systems or more, in which ICD-9 codes reside.

  16. 16. u Coders must learn new, more difficult codes, and handle substantially increased queries. u Physicians must be trained to adopt new codes and documentation. u Clinicians must be trained, and ensure clinical documentation enhancement, with procedures reflecting increased ICD-10 detail. u Information technology staff, already burdened with Meaningful Use / EHR initiatives must take on more, highly specialized work. u Financial management and administrative staff must learn new codes and deal with reduced revenue cycle productivity. u Management must address shortages of required, specialized skills to manage and conduct implementation. Impact of ICD-10 on Workforce" Almost all areas of the organization will experience disruption.   Training will be key – and will require a major enterprise-wide effort.
