Has your facility already completed internal systems testing for ICD-10? Have you concluded high-level training with a test team, followed up by comprehensive coding and documentation training for the rest of the staff?
With less than eight months before the October 1 ICD-10 implementation deadline, CMS recommends that organizations have all of these steps completed, with ongoing practice coding beginning by May. In order to find out how other providers are handling these challenges, and what you can do to catch up, CMS is planning an all-day ICD-10 event.
CMS will host the eHealth Summit: Road to ICD-10 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday, February 14, in Baltimore and is inviting interested parties who cannot attend in person to register for a live webcast of the sessions.
The event will begin with an introduction from Robert Tagalicod, director of the office of eHealth Standards and Services at CMS, before a series of presentations from providers, payers, software vendors, and other CMS representatives.
The providers will focus on tools and resources to aid in the ICD-10 transition, as well as their personal experiences and best practices. The payers and vendors will discuss their ICD-10 readiness and how they are working with providers to ease the transition. CMS will also give an update on the ICD-10 testing it has conducted so far.
To view the full agenda, or to register for the live event or webcast, see CMS’ site.
