Documentation Enhancement is the Key to Success!
Reasons for Change & Cost Benefit Analysis Comparing ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 Steps to ICD-10 Timeline and Implementation Phase How to Survive and Ensure Smooth Transition
No longer meet the demands of healthcare’s data needs Cannot accurately describe the diagnoses and inpatient procedures for care delivered Coded data is well beyond the purposes of ICD-9-CM Greater need for coding accuracy and specificity ICD-9-CM initially was not used for reimbursement purposes ICD-9-CM procedures are outdated and inadequate ICD-9-CM cannot support many of the IT and data exchange initiatives.
More accurate reimbursement for new procedures Fewer rejected claims Fewer fraudulent claims Better understanding of new procedures Improved disease management Quality measures and medical error reduction (Patient safety)
