Summary

Health Systems have invested millions of dollars (and countless hours) preparing for the ICD-10 transition. With the implementation date moved to October 2015, this session will discuss the impact of the delay and describe how Dignity Health is making use of this time to ensure it is prepared.  The speakers will share the actions they taken in the area of HIM/coding, CDI, revenue cycle improvement (both hospital and clinic), and deployment of tools such as computer assisted coding.

After this session, you will be able to:

  • Continue to plan for a smooth transition and post-go-live
  • Make productive use of the delay to fine-tune processes and clinical documentation improvement efforts
  • Describe ways to minimize financial impacts and transition costs
