Whether you've been preparing your ICD-10 plan for years or just starting the journey (hopefully not), it is easy to become overwhelmed and forget everything you have access to.
With ICD-10 being just 61 days away, we wanted to cover some of the most important ICD-10 related features within CollaborateMD. Check them out below to help ensure your ICD-10 transition is successful.
1. ICD-10 Master List - Build your personal ICD-10 code list from our master diagnosis code list. From the Master List, you'll be able to search by the ICD version you want to display, range, specific code, and / or keyword.
2. ICD Frequency Report - Identify your top codes by running the ICD Frequency Report. Run this report to find which ICD-9 codes your practice uses the most within a given date range. You'll want to target the top 25 - 30 codes to start.
3. ICD Crosswalk - This tool will allow you to translate ICD-9 codes into ICD-10 codes, and vice versa, in just a few clicks. Use the ICD-10 Frequency Report to aid the ICD-10 transition in conjunction with the ICD Crosswalk tool within the Codes & Claim section.
4. Dual Coding - Start dual coding your claims with ICD-9 and ICD-10. Coding real patient records with both code sets provides coders with valuable ICD-10 coding practice, allowing you to apply the principles learned in training to the types of cases you will encounter after October 1, 2015.
Please note that currently no payers are accepting ICD-10 codes. As payers begin to accept ICD-10 codes you will be alerted via the Claim and Payer section of the application.
You have enough challenges facing you -- your practice management and medical billing software shouldn't be one of them!
