ICD-10 Implementation Strategies for Home Health
DecisionHealth and NAHC have conducted the largest-ever home health ICD-10 readiness study. The findings will be presented at the ICD-10 Implementation Strategies for Home Health conference and released to all registered attendees in coming days.
Broadly speaking, the results show that most agencies are behind in their planning, confused about how to prepare financially, and lacking in urgency because they underestimate both the scope of the transition and the severity of the impact to cash flow in 2014. Other highlights reveal:
- 90 percent of respondents have not completed an ICD-10 gap analysis
- 75 percent still don’t have an implementation plan and 10 percent will not develop a plan until Q2 2014
- Nearly 63 percent said that ICD-10 was not a high priority because of other more pressing challenges
- A majority of respondents do not plan to begin training their clinical and support staff until 2014
- 25 percent do not plan to begin training their coders until 2014
Regardless of where your agency is in its ICD-10 readiness plan, the ICD-10 Implementation Strategies for Home Health conference can help agencies of all sizes develop a financial and operational road map for ICD-10 implementation.
The conference offers a variety of sessions on operational best-practices that will ensure that attendees have a cash backup, a transition plan, and detailed tactics to adapt your agency to the post-ICD-10 world.
