Beyond ICD-10: Are You Ready for What’s Next?
Dr. Jonathan Handler
Chief Medical Information Officer
Vice President, Solutions Management
The oncoming deadlines of ICD-10, final stages meaningful use, and accountable care-based reimbursement models are redefining quality documentation. Combined with today’s decreasing margins and increasing compliance demands, it’s no longer sufficient to focus on EHRs and checkboxes to meet the complex needs of tomorrow’s personalized care and billing regulations.
Clinical documentation needs to drive more comprehensive, collaborative processes by enabling physicians to create more complete documentation from the start, reflect the patient’s complete story, and provide care teams the most accurate details at all times. It should support smarter decisions within the physician’s workflow—promoting more proactive CDI, better care quality, and increased efficiencies.
This webinar defines the critical components/technologies required to create quality documentation that supports more appropriate reimbursement beyond ICD-10, discusses how closed-loop documentation approaches and interactive technologies enable physicians to create more complete documentation at POC, and describes how to build flexible documentation processes that simplify your physicians’ transition to ICD-10 and beyond.
After This Webinar You'll Be Able To:
- Identify how computer-assisted physician documentation (CAPD) can supplement existing systems to support tomorrow’s quality documentation demands
- Describe how closed loop documentation processes leverage speech and natural language technologies to structure data from within the narrative and promote more complete documentation at the point-of-contact to support more appropriate reimbursement
- Recognize how to achieve the goals of meaningful use, accountable care, and ICD-10 without disrupting the physicians’ documentation workflow or quality
