Two Years and Counting - Where You Should be in Your Transition Plan
This white paper explains the importance of coding in the identification of diseases and procedures, and in bringing staff to the point where they will feel comfortable using this new system.
The report states that the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires the use of the ICD-10-CM coding system to report all diagnoses in any setting, and ICD-10-PCS to report in-patient procedures as of 1 October 2013.
It explains that in addition to providing crucial information to measure quality care, assess patient safety, profile and determine at-risk populations and many other data-driven activities, coding also communicates to payers what services were provided and where payment is expected.
