ICD-10 Experts in High Demand as Deadline to Switch Remains
All healthcare providers must be on the ICD-10 codes by Oct. 2014, which means ICD-10 implementation experts are in high demand over the next 12 months. Even with the one-year extension of the ICD-10 deadline, hospitals and healthcare providers are in varied states of readiness, according to recent surveys, with fifteen months to go. Training and staffing resources remain a key concern for stakeholders.
In the run-up to the deadline, Healthcare IT Leaders has a large national team of consulting resources, including ICD-10 project managers and ICD-10 coders, to support your conversion project needs. The ICD-10 implementation infographic below from a medical billing company offers a good overview of ICD-10 challenges and benefits.
