Acting CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner confirmed the October 1, 2014, ICD-10 deadline and encouraged everyone to work diligently toward a successful transition.
Make sure your practice is ready October 1, 2014. Visit the CMS ICD-10 website for the latest news and resources to help you prepare for the October 1, 2014, deadline.
To make the transition even easier, try these tools provided by SMA and Simple Solutions.
Step one is preparing physicians and staff for the new codes that will be required for their specialty by acquainting them with the documentation elements required to meet the new ICD-10 code specificity. " Simple Solutions ICD-10 Transition Software is a fast, easy, and affordable way to accomplish this.
Simple Solutions advises providers to not rush into the process before they have a clear plan. Most practices can afford to take the next 3-6 months to really familiarize themselves with what will have to be accomplished in the coming months to ensure success and to lay out a clear step by step plan for accomplishing. Simple Solutions has taken the first step of this planning phase for you. The Simple Solutions ICD-10 Transition Toolkit stands alone as the only fully automated, completely integrated, and eminently affordable ICD-10 implementation solution that organizes and accounts for each and every ICD-10 "moving part" in the outpatient ambulatory environment.
