ICD-10: The Implications for Physicians

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Many have begun planning for the transition to ICD-10. Have you? Planning and implementation requires months of effort and time is of the essence. In this informational webinar, you will learn the implications of ICD-10 for physicians, why we need to change from ICD-9-CM, what the benefits are of moving to ICD-10, and how to plan your program to ensure you are ready for October 1, 2014 implementation. ICD-10-CM applies to all physicians and hospitals regardless of the practice, hospital size, or payment model and is aligned with reimbursement, quality, and other important initiatives. In addition, hospitals will also need to transition to ICD-10-PCS for reporting of their inpatient services. Migrating to ICD-10 will require collaboration between hospitals and physicians. Learn how physicians can be engaged in the ICD-10 planning and implementation process.
