ICD-10 for Rural and Critical Access Hospitals – A Roadmap for Successful Implementation
Presented: Wednesday, March 12, 2014
Moderator:
Nelly Leon-Chisen, RHIA, Director of Coding and Classification at the American Hospital Association
Speakers:
Keith Fraidenburg - Vice President, Education and Communications of CHIME
Stephen Stewart, MBA, FACHE, CPHIMS, CHCIO - CIO, Henry County Health Center
Rena Salamacha - CIO, George L. Mee Memorial Hospital

Summary:
The deadline to implement ICD-10 for coding in the nation’s health care system is looming. The use of ICD-10 has significant implications because it affects many hospital workflows and tasks, not the least of which are submitting bills and receiving payment. Hospitals that struggle with the transition could see serious impacts on cash flow. Switching over to ICD-10 will require better documentation by caregivers; implementation and testing of new software; and testing exchanges of data using ICD-10 with various entities that receive and handle hospital billing. If your organization has not started, or if you are far behind, it’s time to triage. This panel will discuss ways to identify the most essential steps to take to fast-track your successful ICD-10 implementation, and provide advice on how best to assign resources and find outside assistance to ensure that you are ready on October 1st.

On-demand viewing now available.
