Rancho Cucamonga, CA – July 30, 2015
As physician groups anxiously prepare for and navigate the switchover from ICD-9 to ICD-10, ScribeConnect is poised and ready to assist them. The company’s comprehensive certification process for all of its scribes includes ICD-10 training, which means a smooth transition process for hospital and physician clients.
Concerns at the forefront for doctors and hospital administrators are the potentially crippling effects of coding and billing discrepancies between ICD-9 and ICD-10. Physician groups have cited a host of potential problems, including the inability of many vendors of EHR and practice-management systems to have their ICD-10 updated systems delivered in enough time for physicians and their staffs to have them installed, train themselves on how to use them, and have the claims generated by them adequately tested against the systems and rules of their health plans.
Just one month from the mandatory deadline, ScribeConnect is already assisting clients to successfully manage this change. In addition to training scribes on ICD-10, ScribeConnect offers clients EHR Transition Assistance that includes ICD-10 readiness.
