For the healthcare industry, one of the most hard-hitting changes in recent years is ICD-10. One of the most complex regulatory mandates, transitioning to ICD-10 encompasses providers, payers and claims clearing houses. As a result, the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 has a far-reaching impact on any organization’s structure, affecting people, processes and technologies.
With October 2014 fast-approaching, healthcare organizations are switching gears and racing to achieve ICD-10 compliance.
Organizations across the board are adopting various measures, such as analyzing the impact, redesigning the architecture, developing the systems, and, finally, testing to ensure ICD-10 compliance.
