Success has never felt so good. We have successfully met and surpassed the national ICD-10 implementation from October 1, 2015. If you were like most organizations, you were ready a year in advance. Others, however, were relieved when CMS postponed the original go-live date of October, 2014 to a year later. Some physicians have been very vocal about the challenges involved in learning a new coding system, and we continue to see growing pains as the new ICD-10 codes are implemented. With reimbursements in full swing, how do you ensure your organization is successfully and efficiently implementing all these changes?
One way you can ensure this is by creating, implementing and optimizing an official audit process.
