We're a month away!Now is the time to kick your ICD-10 transition plans into high gear. Here are the points to hone in on to be ready for ICD-10 in 30 days:
Continue the dialogue with referral physicians.
Thorough documentation starts with physicians. Talk with referral sources and agree on a plan to ensure you obtain the documentation you need. Our ICD-10
which addresses physician documentation, is a good reminder and may help you further the discussion.
Keep up detailed clinician documentation. Document those details needed to accurately code in ICD-10. Don't forget to include items such as therapy considerations for home health and a specific terminal diagnosis for hospice.
Ensure your internal quality assurance process is sound. Now is the time to perform a thorough audit of your process and schedule training to address areas for improvement.
As always, feel free to contact your client engagement leader with any questions or concerns.
