ICD 10 Compliance

 

Migration has its own challenges, irrespective of the type of migration. Nonetheless, it holds a promise for a better future. The key to capitalizing the full potential of this transformation is to look at the business aspects and unearth the opportunity that the compliance would lead to. It is highly recommended that organizations start preparing for this migration at strategic levels to derive optimum benefits.

Client Challenges

With the compliance date set to October 1, 2013, the ICD remediation has emerged as a mammoth challenge for the US healthcare industry. Any non-compliance will undoubtedly have a significant implication on payers, providers, pharmacies, lab and intermediaries.

ICD migration is dependent on certain factors, including the following:

  • Critical business criteria identification
  • Remediation management
  • Assurance
  • Training and change management
