MediPro, Inc. Offers Attendance to McKesson Hosted ICD-10 Webinar
There are approximately 17,000 codes with ICD-9. Comparatively, there will be about 140,000 codes with the implementation of ICD-10 and will take a physician’s office 70 to 80 hours of training to understand and be able to implement these codes into the new routines of the office.
This McKesson hosted webinar will explain to physicians and office managers their key roles during the shift to ICD-10 compliance. Comparisons to ICD-9 and the new ICD-10 will demonstrate specific differences such as code extensions for specificity and laterality as well as a dummy placeholder (x) for development of new codes in the future. The webinar will also go on to show how fast new codes will start to appear in each specialty.
Physicians need to be prepared for several expense areas including: increased documentation costs, staff education and training, changes to super-bills, information technology system changes and cash flow disruption. Multiple ways to start on these transitions will be discussed to make sure that a practice’s office and revenue are not in jeopardy during this implementation.
MediPro, Inc. strongly encourages physicians to take the first step and pre-order Lytec 2014 to take advantage of the webinar and learn the process of becoming ICD-10 compliant. With the right tools and information, the switch can be easier than one thinks.
