NAHC Offers Tips for ICD-10 Preparations

The implementation date for the ICD-10 is fast approaching.  All providers, health plans, and clearinghouses must comply with ICD-10 regulations as ‘covered entities’ under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).  The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has heard reports of varying levels of preparedness among home health and hospice providers.  Some providers have been preparing for some time, while others have made little effort towards preparations.  

NAHC urges agencies that have not begun preparation or have invested little in terms of preparations to begin NOW; Oct 1 will be upon us sooner than you think.  Although late in the game, there is still time for meaningful progress. 

The first step is to assign a team responsible for ICD-10 preparations.  This could be one or several individuals, depending on your agency size, who is/are aware of the gaps and can coordinate efforts to aid in improving preparedness.  Next, the agencies need to conduct a gap analysis.  A gap analysis allows the agency to understand where they are and what they need to do to reach their goal.

Annual Meeting Registration Now Open and “Easier than Ever”

Registration and housing for NAHC’s 2015 Annual Meeting are now open.  The Annual Meeting will be held Wednesday, October 28, through Friday, October 30, in Nashville, Tennessee, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.

“Conference registration is easier than ever,” said NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris.  “There’s no place you can go to get more information about home care and hospice. We’re offering two-plus days of 90 high-caliber education sessions.  Each education session offers comprehensive and precise information that you can implement immediately upon returning to the workplace.”

Registration is $800 for NAHC members and $1,200 for non-members before September 28.

Special conference rates for Gaylord Opryland rooms start at $225 per night (plus taxes and resort fees).  Hotel reservations and conference registration have been combined this year to make it quicker and easier to attend our biggest meeting of the year.  To take advantage of the special rate at the Gaylord and to get the lowest rate for the Annual Meeting, click here.
