Preparation for this mandated transition may seem extremely daunting given the complexity of the new alpha-numeric format, the industry-wide Coder shortage, and the current revenue cycle challenges facing the industry today. Recognizing the amount of effort required to plan for ICD-10, Phase 2 Meaningful Use requirements have been postponed to allow healthcare organizations the opportunity to strongly focus on their ICD-10 readiness. Proactive facilities across the country are creating strategic roadmaps and putting computer-assisted technology in place to prepare for the ICD-10 mandate. By planning now for implementation, healthcare organizations have a valuable opportunity to review their business processes and consider an overall solution that will provide the revenue cycle acceleration, productivity improvement, and reimbursements they want today with the ICD-10 preparation needed for October 1, 2013.
