Identify and Mitigate ICD-10 Impacts on Provider Revenue Cycle Management
Date: Wednesday, October 19, 2011 I Time: 2 p.m. Eastern / 11 a.m. Pacific I Duration: 1 Hour
The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 represents one of the most wide-ranging impacts to a healthcare provider's business. Given the dramatic increase in codes from roughly 18,000 to more than 145,000, processes for scheduling, care delivery, diagnostics, billing, and analytics will likely change in some way.
Maintaining revenue cycle neutrality has been a primary goal for most provider organizations through the ICD-10 transition. Simplistic approaches to ICD-10, such as just using a crosswalk or code management tool, are unlikely to address the business impact of ICD-10 and could result in coding decisions that yield lower reimbursements compared to previous years.
This Web seminar will describe a prioritized, risk-based approach to ICD-10—one that not only ensures revenue cycle neutrality, but also lays the groundwork for healthcare providers to tackle other business processes affected by ICD-10.
Attend this Web seminar to learn:
- How to identify systems and departments at highest risk in your revenue cycle management operations
- How to use technology tools to achieve neutrality in MS-DRG payments
- New ways to collaborate across the organization to mitigate transition risks
- Strategies to work with payers who will continue to use ICD-9 after the October 2013 transition
