The following is an excerpt from an article on ICD-10 Monitor. It was written by Cathie Wilde.

ICD-10 Updates

Templates can either enhance documentation necessary for coding and data quality, or they can hinder things by restricting options and failing to prompt physicians to document specific information. However, templates cannot be overlooked when it comes to ICD-10. This is particularly true if a hospital relies more heavily on templates to capture structured data. Many hospitals may use templates for certain diagnoses, orders, or visit types and allow physicians to dictate information for everything else.

The following is an excerpt from an article on Diagnostic Imaging. It was written by Avery Hurt.

Making-ICD-10-Training-Fun-at-Your-Medical-PracticeMany practices are stressing over ICD-10 training — and spending lots of money on computer programs, outside training courses, and thanks to implementation delays, refresher courses. And no wonder. Good training is crucial. The better trained you are by Oct. 1, the less money you are likely to lose because of refused claims.

4-Tips-for-Choosing-the-Right-Software-Provider-for-Your-PracticeThe computers sitting on the desks at your medical practice can be considered among the most important links holding your business together. Generic business applications or one-size-fits-all medical programs will, by definition, be unsuitable for handling many of the regular events and tasks that your staff has to deal with each day.
