Home Health ICD-10 Readiness [Infographic]

Posted by Crystal Parks on Apr 10, 2015 8:30:00 AM



ICD-10 is coming. Despite smaller organizations and physician's practices wanting a delay, CMS is sticking with the October 1, 2015 compliance date.   

Is your home health organization taking the steps needed to be ICD-10 compliant?  By this time, your organization should have a strategy in place to comply with the new diagnosis coding. You should have your ICD-10 compatible software installed and be testing with your applicable vendors and payers. Staff should have already started or will soon be starting to receive training on ICD-10.  

Organizations shouldn't be hoping for another delay. Home health providers should be actively reviewing their project plan on a regular basis and crossing tasks off the list. 

The infographic below provides a high-level outline of what you need to be doing to be ready for ICD-10 on October 1, 2015.   

Visit the CMS ICD-10 website for the latest news and resources to help you prepare for the October 1, 2015, deadline.
