iPatientCare, As an Industry-Leading EHR and Practice Management System Provider, Ready for Transitioning to ICD-10
iPatientCare, Inc., a pioneer in mHealth and cloud-based ambulatory EHR and integrated Practice Management solutions, announces its readiness for the transition to ICD-10. All HIPAA-covered healthcare entities are required to switch to the new code set by October 1, 2014, meaning that their EHR software and medical billing systems must be compliant. Any claims submitted with ICD-9 codes for services provided on or after the October compliance deadline will not be paid.
ICD-10 is designed to improve patient care with its detailed ability to measure the quality, efficacy, and safety of care. Looking forward, it will advance the future of healthcare by enhancing research and health-policy decisions. As a means for better management, ICD-10 will improve clinical, financial, and administrative performance in a variety of valuable ways. It will reveal important insights about practice to help for making more informed decisions. It will allow for better resource allocation by tracking the time spent on procedures and processes. It will also increase the timeliness of payments by reducing claim denials due to incorrect coding. Altogether, ICD-10 will be a change that lets you crack the code to a more productive and profitable practice.
