Many providers are operating with blinders on, completely unaware of the magnitude of the conversion and potential train wreck ahead for their reimbursement. Support your physicians through the difficult change ahead by helping them take the right steps forward to make their transition as efficient and painless as possible.
Regardless of the size of the practice, training for any implementation – especially for one as complex and far reaching as ICD-10 – can be costly and difficult to deliver. With only a year remaining to complete the transition, providers and their staff must step up to planning, training, software/system upgrades/replacements, as well as other necessary investments. ICD-10 will require a significant education investment in order to ensure accurate coding and minimize productivity loss. While large organizations may have the resources to purchase training materials or send staff to training sessions, smaller organizations may have to depend on special societies or share resources to provide the needed training.
