They key thing for physicians to know about ICD-10 is that if they are using good clinical documentation practices, the coders will do the hard work. Much of the burden of ICD-10 comes to those physicians who currently do not document the details of the patient condition. Those that do will feel less pain from the ICD-10 transition.

The number and type of new concepts required for ICD-10 are not foreign to clinicians. The focus of the documentation should really be about good patient care. Patients deserve to have accurate and complete documentation of their conditions.

If other industries understand the value of accurate and complete documentation of data about encounters, shouldn't healthcare?

ICD-10 reimbursement will introduce changes based on what was done and why. Certainly any physician interested providing good care cannot argue with this?
