The healthcare industry has reached an inflection point. Advances in medicine and the efforts to deliver effective care through those advances have led to rapidly escalating costs within the industry. However, initiatives such as the implementation of ICD-10 and healthcare reforms that will follow (EHR adoption, better fraud and abuse monitoring, pay-for-performance, etc.) will serve as key enablers for increasing efficiency and lowering costs within the healthcare industry and offer an opportunity for health plans to gain a competitive advantage.
The implementation of ICD-10 code sets mandated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) represents sweeping change for the healthcare industry. Payers and providers should be well underway with their compliance efforts. We are just months away from the October 1, 2014, go-live date for ICD-10. Payers and providers that have delayed their remediation efforts will find their organizations facing a serious time crunch.
