EDITOR’S NOTE: This is a first in a series of articles on fast-tracking ICD-10 implementation. Currently, not everyone is getting ready for ICD-10. Some hospital systems still are calling to get quotes and proposals for their preparatory work. I can understand this strategy being employed by critical-access hospitals and rural…
One of most recognizable American icons, the diner is a place that symbolizes a strong, inherent sense of community. And just about anyone who has frequented a diner likely has experienced the quintessential diner staple: the toasted corn muffin, typically served cut in half, separating the muffin top from the…
The “ostrich” approach will not work in this case, because ICD-10 is not going away. There is much to be done prior to implementation. Two different sets of ICD codes are required, one set for the IRF PAI, and another set for the UB-04. Documentation Requirements: The ICD-9-CM guidelines for…
As hospitals and health systems prepare for the transition to ICD-10, many gifted and intelligent individuals in the health information management (HIM) field are becoming increasingly frustrated by the apparent ambivalence of physicians toward ICD-10 education. Physicians are generally intelligent and extensively educated individuals. One might anticipate that they would…

Rhonda Taller, a member of the HIMSS ICD-10 Task Force, was not surprised by listeners’ answers to Wednesday’s Ten Ready Poll question: When do you plan to be ready for total end-to-end testing? Of the number who responded, 46 percent ““really have no clue” when they will begin end-to-end testing…
We arrived at 7:15 this morning for the HIMSS/WEDI ICD-10 National Pilot Program meeting. Mark Lott described the logic behind the testing plan and stated, “any test that doesn't find things is a waste of time.” The intent of the pilot is to identify issues and share results, testing metrics,…
Firing dual warning shots across the bow last month, both the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) sent letters to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius asking her to hold firm to the October 2014 implementation…
News trickled out of New Orleans Sunday like a small drip from a leaky faucet: municipal officials reported that a fire in the city’s Sewerage & Water Board’s (S&WB) power plant in Carrollton caused the shutdown of what the Times-Picayune newspaper described as Boiler No. 5 – the generator that…

Consider the practice known as dual coding – or is it double coding? That is a very good question to ask yourself as you work toward ICD-10 implementation. The difference between the two can be difficult to discern at first, but know this: dual coding can be your avenue to…
One reason for adopting ICD-10-CM that is cited frequently is the increased specificity provided by ICD-10 codes. This increased specificity provides more precise language and up-to-date terminology, which in turn allows for a more accurate description of a patient’s disease or condition. More accurate diagnoses in turn provide improved morbidity…
Electronic health records (EHR) and the use of copy/paste functions are hotly debated topics that have seen a surge in publicity recently. In fact, regulators are becoming increasingly concerned that the copy/paste function is contributing to an increase in provider fraud and abuse. Copying clinical documentation poses both clinical and…
In this publication and many others; in private meetings and HIMSS seminars and institutes; in business and government; we all have discussed in detail ICD-10 and all it means. This certainly is appropriate, as implementing ICD-10 may be the most complex, convoluted, and confusing single system change any of you…
The Urban Dictionary defines “on the grind” as meaning to work hard, and to always be hustling. We’re finding that almost all of our clients are “on the grind” when it comes to ICD-10, meaning that active remediation program work (i.e. post-assessment work) is either in full swing or gearing…

I have traveled extensively since the beginning of the year, visiting prestigious organizations on both coasts and many places in between, and a recurring theme I’ve encountered involves how to remediate electronic clinical content in anticipation of the transition to ICD-10. Between upgrades related to Stage 2 of meaningful use…
ICD-10-PCS represents a major departure from ICD-9-CM procedure coding. In fact, many coding specialists find ICD-10-PCS much more challenging to learn than ICD-10-CM (which still shares many similarities with ICD-9-CM). In order to ease the transition, we are providing tips for coding under this system.
A lot can happen in nine months—and that’s exactly the hope of leaders from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and professional organizations when it comes to being ready for end-to-end testing of ICD-10 claims by October 1, 2013. Yes, you read it right: By October 1, 2013—one…
We are always in search of the fastest and least painful ways to solve our problems, and selecting a computer-assisted coding (CAC) solution is no exception. Some consider it a silver bullet or magic pill. Still, there is never any easy, one-size-fits-all answer. Nowhere is that truer than when it…

Think about where medical technology was in the 1970s, and all the advances that have occurred since then. There was no such thing as echocardiography at the time! The code sets utilized today are more than 40 years old and do not reflect current medical practices, while the new code…
ICD-10 will be challenging for everyone, but in particular practitioners. Many physicians in all specialties are moving to electronic health records now or will transition in the next year. Selecting the appropriate specificity of an ICD-10 code may be challenging. How do you assist practitioners with documentation improvement to allow…
In my previous article I went into detail about which ICD-10-CM codes would be most likely to replace the 739 primary diagnosis (Chiropractic subluxation) in ICD-9-CM. Using a Medicare local coverage determination (LCD) and the General Equivalence Mappings (GEMs) as a starting point, in this article I will attempt to…
As I continue to listen to voices from across the industry as we move into the critical last 600 days before ICD-10 implementation, I am becoming concerned that our discussion is still stuck in silos (i.e. financial neutrality, a payer strategy and solutions, etc.). Providers have an expectation that with…

When each new year arrives, many of us make resolutions. The most common resolutions involve losing a few pounds or becoming more organized. But now that 2013 has arrived, ICD-10 implementation has drawn closer – and procrastination is not an option! It comes highly recommended that your new year’s resolution…
The gravity of undertaking a complete replacement of one of the most essential elements of the healthcare reimbursement mechanism cannot be overstated: If ICD-10-CM implementation is executed flawlessly, there will be little difference between “before” and “after,” yet if there are problems, the impact will range from painful to cataclysmic.…
As many coding professionals may know by now, the ICD-10-CM coding system brings with it several significant changes from the ICD-9-CM coding system. In general, the character length of the codes will increase—from ICD-9’s three to five to ICD-10’s length of up to seven. In ICD-9 alphanumeric characters only were…
Part of mastering ICD-10-CM requires an understanding of the new terminology. In ICD-9-CM, codes identifying residual effects following treatment for the acute phase of an illness or injury are designated as late effect codes. In ICD-10-CM, the term “late effect” has been replaced with sequela. General Guidelines The ICD-10-CM guidelines…
At first glance, the transition to ICD-10 seems like a daunting task. The code set used throughout the U.S. is set to expand from 18,000 to 155,000 codes, after all. Those codes also will transition from being just three to four numbers to seven alphanumeric characters. As a result, both…
“The game is afoot!”—or at least that’s what Sherlock Holmes uttered to Watson before one of their criminal-catching adventures, and it’s also true in the case of ICD-10 preparation. Although the Oct. 1, 2014, implementation date is still 21 months away, guests on the Jan. 29, 2013, broadcast of Talk…
Ensuring successful migration to ICD-10 will require intensive planning and an integrated, enterprise-wide technology approach that minimizes compliance risk. Parallel to developing new policies and procedures, implementing new workflows and introducing intensive staff training, providers must acquire information technology (IT) resources that address both the financial and compliance challenges presented…

Let me start out by explaining how difficult it is to come up with the antonym to synergy. I searched multiple thesauruses and websites and finally found the term dysergy, which is probably etymologically correct. Why the search? As I have assisted hospitals and their medical staffs in preparation for…
Codes in the ICD-9-CM classification system to report fracture aftercare are limited. The ICD-9-CM Official Guidelines indicate that the facility that provides the initial fracture treatment reports a code for the acute fracture. Rehabilitation facilities that provide subsequent care for healing fractures must report codes for fracture aftercare, as the…
We’ve long believed that, when it comes to ICD-10, transactional processing will be less problematic strategically/intellectually than analytic processing. Most healthcare providers (and payers) stopped building their own transaction processing systems years ago, opting for transaction processing systems from software (and now “cloud”) partners. It’s logical to assume (especially given…
The expectation is that ICD-10-CM/PCS will improve the data being collected, which in turn will allow data-driven outcomes to improve the delivery and quality of healthcare. Although clinical documentation is the foundation of the health record, sometimes there are gaps within the documentation or within the translation of the documentation…
