    6. 6. Why Reform <ul><li>Fewer and fewer Americans have health insurance </li></ul><ul><li>Nearly 46 million Americans have no insurance; 25 million are underinsured. </li></ul><ul><li>Many employers have stopped offering insurance to employees. </li></ul><ul><li>Total health care spending was $2.4 trillion in 2007 -- or $7,900 per person (journal Health Affairs) </li></ul><ul><li>The United States spends 52 percent more per person than the next most costly nation, Norway, (Kaiser Family Foundation) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There's little debate that health care reform is necessary. The question is “how to make it so…” </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. Problem <ul><li>The current system, International Classification of Diseases, 9th Edition, Clinical Modifcation (ICD-9-CM), does not provide the necessary detail for patients’ medical conditions or the procedures and services performed on hospitalized patients. </li></ul><ul><li>ICD-9-CM is 30 years old, has outdated and obsolete terminology, uses outdated codes that produce inaccurate and limited data, and is inconsistent with current medical practice. </li></ul><ul><li>Cannot accurately describe the diagnoses and inpatient procedures of care delivered in the 21st century. </li></ul>
    8. 8. Where Does ICD-10 Fit?
    9. 9. ICD-10-CM/PCS <ul><li>ICD-10-CM: </li></ul><ul><li>The clinical modification of diagnosis classification system developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for use in all U.S. health care treatment settings. Diagnosis coding under this system uses 3–7 alpha and numeric digits and full code titles, but the format is very much the same as ICD-9-CM; and </li></ul><ul><li>ICD-10-PCS: </li></ul><ul><li>The procedure classification system developed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for use in the U.S. for inpatient hospital settings ONLY. The new procedure coding system uses 7 alpha or numeric digits while the ICD-9-CM coding system uses 3 or 4 numeric digits. </li></ul>
    10. 10. CMS View <ul><li>Incorporates much greater specificity and clinical information, which results in: </li></ul><ul><li>Improved ability to measure health care services </li></ul><ul><li>Increased sensitivity when refining grouping and reimbursement methodologies; </li></ul><ul><li>Enhanced ability to conduct public health surveillance; and </li></ul><ul><li>Decreased need to include supporting documentation with claims; </li></ul><ul><li>Provides better data for: </li></ul><ul><li>Measuring care furnished to patients; </li></ul><ul><li>Designing payment systems; </li></ul><ul><li>Processing claims; </li></ul><ul><li>Making clinical decisions; </li></ul><ul><li>Tracking public health; </li></ul><ul><li>Identifying fraud and abuse; and </li></ul><ul><li>Conducting research. </li></ul>
    11. 11. <ul><li>The conversion provides powerful information to healthcare organizations. It encourages analyses beyond remedial input-output analyses and focuses on a holistic evaluation of the inputs, outputs and outcomes stemming from business decisions. Evaluating a business from reworked analytic reports built around the new ICD-10 codes that examine the bigger picture of how business intelligence, decision support and analytics should perform, will change organizations from status- quo to “next generation”.  Business process change will include: improving the quality of care, improving managed care, providing preventative care at lower costs, identifying organizational inefficiencies, and providing insight and real-time data on departmental level. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Better Data, Better Decisions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Better Data, Higher Quality </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fewer Inefficiencies, Lower Costs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Better Analytics, More Success </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Right Data, Right Business Model </li></ul></ul>Leveraging Granularity
    12. 12. <ul><li>The ICD-10 code set captures nearly 10 times more data than its predecessor </li></ul><ul><li>Having good data is the key to evaluating disease management, population needs, eliminating waste, forecasting budgets, providing care management and other business decisions that affect the bottom line </li></ul><ul><li>ICD-10 compliant organizations will be better positioned to manage their workforces, eliminate costly waste and enjoy the rewards for providing top- notch quality care. </li></ul>Better Data, Better Decisions
    13. 13. <ul><li>Having more specific data enhances an organization’s ability to evaluate how inputs and outputs translate into outcomes. </li></ul><ul><li>This will be done through the development of new quality and performance metrics. In the short-run, while the output of most measurements are decreases in inefficiencies, the outcome will be significant savings of time and money. </li></ul><ul><li>By staying just inches ahead of government mandates, organizations will be better positioned to meet future changes. </li></ul>Better Data, Higher Quality
    14. 14. <ul><li>Integrating systems means that unnecessary redundancies and inefficiencies will be eliminated. </li></ul><ul><li>Considering that the WHO (2010) estimates that 20-40% of healthcare expenses are due to inefficiencies, eliminating any portion of these will result in substantial gains for healthcare organizations and patients. </li></ul>Fewer Inefficiencies, Lower Costs
    15. 15. <ul><li>The granularity of data provided through ICD-10 compliance provides healthcare organizations with a rich data source. </li></ul><ul><li>The time has never been better for healthcare organizations to compete on analytics. </li></ul><ul><li>Using re-worked analytic reports built around ICD-9 codes, healthcare organizations can examine the bigger picture of how business intelligence, decision support and analytics should perform. </li></ul><ul><li>There will be opportunities to build more comprehensive data marts and stronger operational reporting including digital operations dashboards. </li></ul><ul><li>For more progressive HIT teams, ICD-10 remediation could be an opportunity to move to a self-service model for reporting that capitalizes on a new generation of business intelligence tools. </li></ul>Better Analytics, More Success
    16. 16. <ul><li>Having enhanced access to information makes it possible to evaluate how each function of a healthcare business interacts with all other functions. Increased transparency allows organizations to better evaluate areas of opportunity and missed opportunity. </li></ul><ul><li>Capturing and migrating data across an organization (and across the industry) will help decision-makers recognize areas of opportunity and growth. </li></ul><ul><li>This gives healthcare leaders the ability to re-structure how a healthcare organization views its service lines for operations and profitability. </li></ul><ul><li>Analysis, database remediation, database migration and testing brings a new detailed capability to examine the profitability and costs by procedure, the costs of specific diagnoses and potential operational savings from best practices. . </li></ul>Right Data, Right Business Model
    17. 17. By the Numbers… <ul><li>To put the change effort into context: </li></ul><ul><li>If 155,000 combined diagnosis and procedure codes take 155,000 hours at 1 hour per code… </li></ul><ul><li>Mapping effort includes determining defensible medical policy, executing a forward crosswalk, validating the clinical equivalency map with a backward crosswalk, and verifying revenue neutrality </li></ul><ul><li>From today, there are only 109 weeks remaining till the ICD-10 compliance deadline of October 1, 2013 </li></ul><ul><ul><li> Based upon a 40 hour work week, it will take over 35 dedicated staff to just administer the clinical equivalency mapping of all codes. </li></ul></ul>

    24. 24. Closing Thoughts <ul><li>Organization governance does not equal icd10 project governance </li></ul><ul><li>Where legacy has big dependency upon icd9 in application logic, consider alternatives… </li></ul><ul><li>Business and IT need to get along: this is not typical SDLC… need to transition waterfall to dynamic requirements management </li></ul><ul><li>Payers and Providers need to get along: clock is ticking, and we’re still trying to define neutrality before we can build processes to verify neutrality (and then we need to re-contract…) </li></ul><ul><li>Pick partners wisely: you can’t outsource accountability for PHI through hosted solutions… </li></ul>
