A few weeks ago I had a great conversation with the editor of ICD-10 Watch about the pending transition to HIPAA 5010 and what it means to all practices in the nation. During this exchange, we discussed how National Testing Day went back in August and how my own company is preparing for the transition. After a short time, we turned our focus to what practices should be doing right now to get ready for 5010—including the different items that practices should be doing if they have a clearinghouse or if they file directly with payers.
The editor then proceeded to write a great column about this conversation, where he eloquently shared my tips for all of those that have not yet started to prepare. Now, I truly believe that all practices can prepare for the transition and still have time, but if you are beginning to stress about the transition, you can read the entire article here.
