Our hospital HIM department wants to start evaluating our ICD-10 progress. Can you provide any information about programs that are available for doing this?
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have issued a toolkit that offers tips and resources for asessing ICD-10 progress. It provides key performance indicators to identify potential issues that could affect productivity or cash flow, such as:
- Addressing opportunities for improvement
- Troubleshooting issues identified during your assessment
- Deploying tactics like system enhancements and targeted staff training
- Maintaining your progress and keeping up to date on ICD-10.
