ICD-10 QA & Testing: A Pragmatic Approach
John Keller, Ciber
Do you find colleagues and vendors talking about ICD-10 code scans, assessments, crosswalks etc., but aren’t quite sure how it impacts your QA organization?
Is ICD-10 remediation truly a very large, lengthy and complex program, or is it all just hype?
Are you curious about what it truly takes to test your applications, system and business processes for ICD-10?
As a QA Leader, is there more you could do than just assure support for ICD-10 codes? How about helping your business reduce costs, increase quality and become more agile?
The federal government estimated that it would take 2-3 years for the entire healthcare industry to transition to new ICD-10 code set. Yet, remediation work has been sporadic at best. Some consider it a trivial change best left until later. Others have already assembled large cross functional, interdepartmental teams, consultants and vendors to begin working on identifying impact and potential solutions.
Regardless of the strategy your organization has adopted, and their relative urgency (or not), one impact is certain. As a healthcare quality assurance professional you’re on the front line. By October 1, 2013, you will have to assure your organization that it can support ICD-10.
