GeBBS Healthcare Solutions, Inc., an industry leader in healthcare revenue cycle management outsourcing solutions, announced today that two of its thought leaders, Denise Cawley, MHA, CPC, Vice President of Client Relations and Brigette LaBar, Director of Client Relations, will speak at the Spring 2012 Radiology Summit in Orlando, FL. Their presentation is entitled: “ICD-10 Prepare for the Unexpected,” and will cover how radiology management should use the additional time created by the ICD-10 implementation delay to prepare for the new coding system’s impact on their operations, beginning October 2014.
The presentation will address in detail the significant and specific impact of ICD-10 on radiology practices, and suggestions will be offered on how radiology management might deal with these challenges. The presentation will also address the impact of the 155,000 codes in ICD-10 as opposed to ICD-9’s 17,000 codes; the effects of ICD-10-PCS (Procedure Coding System) which consists of 72,081 codes will also be covered. Organization of the new coding system will be discussed, as well as a humorous look at some of the more arcane codes, such as “being struck by a bird.”
In addition, the presentation will address the benefits of the new ICD-10 system to patients, payers and providers. Benefits for patients will include enhanced tracking and trending of diseases; payer benefits will be achieved through better utilization management and innovations in payment design and contracting; and provider benefits will be realized through improved care coordination, more effective case management and improved utilization management.
