Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Medical Group Management Association’s annual meeting in Las Vegas. During the conference, I was excited to speak with other practice managers, physicians and technology vendors about the constant changes in the medical field – including how people handle ongoing issues such as denials management and revenue cycle management.
In addition to these insightful conversations, I had the honor of leading an educational session about preparing for the pending 5010 and ICD-10 transitions. During the hour, I provided tips about how every practice can prepare for the implementation of both 5010 and ICD-10, especially focusing on how practices can ensure that they have mitigated the possibility of revenue cycle disruptions during the transitions. During the session, there were many great questions and I was happy to see people starting to think about the transition to ICD-10. In addition, Healthcare Finance News wrote a quick synopsis of the session, which you can read here.
I look forward to hearing how people take these recommendations and apply them to their own practice. As your organization works towards both implementation deadlines, let everyone know how it is going by adding a comment in the boxes below.
