ICD-10: Are We Overlooking the Real Stumbling Block?

By Elizabeth W. Woodcock 


The new ICD-10 coding system is undoubtedly a beast - with more than 70,000 codes, the sheer volume of selections can make your head spin. Yet, the professional associations, consultants and instructors who serve the community of coders, who live and breathe these codes day in and day out, have responded with enthusiasm to the new diagnostic coding system.

They are naturally excited about a new system that has the potential to improve accuracy and reduce ambiguity.
Although coders may require prep time to integrate the new system into their daily workflow, it's my opinion that all of our focus on educating them may be lulling us into a false sense of security. Indeed, the new ICD-10 coding system will truly change everyone's jobs, not just those of coders.

Take a gander at the impacts that ICD-10 will have on your job - and on those who work beside you in your practice. Read More

LB Medwaste Services  
In addition to the flexible infectious waste services LB Medwaste provides CCPAPP members, they also offer training solutions to help customers ensure compliance with the newest OSHA requirements, including the new
Hazard Communication Standard (Effective December 2013).

If your practice is contemplating self-storage for your medical records and other sensitive documents, please consider using Rhindox as your storage solution. An equivalent amount of space to hold 200 standard boxes averages over $100 a month in self-storage facilities and the same amount of boxes would be about half the price or less a month at RhinoDox. The 50% savings also buys you access to Rhinodox's secure and user friendly online system for keeping detailed information of what is being stored, as well as maintaining your destruction dates. RhinoDox can help with all the other document related services including NAID Certified shredding and imaging of documents. Learn more
