Making physicians’ knowledge transition to ICD-10 and HIPAA 5010 easier,
efficient and meaningful
Physicians requiring to upgrading their coding knowledge to a more exhaustive ICD-1O system More
than any other clinical or operational entity that needs to realize the affinity to the ICD-10 and HIPAA
compliant medical data filing and processing, it is your physicians that require show the lead. As
physicians are the first-contact of clinical encounter, there decisive description on the medical
intervention administered would eventually pave way for flawless billing and coding. But, physicians
who hither to had been averse to medical coding anyway, the proposition of elevating their requisite
level of coding knowledge by as much as three times (the current ICD-10 requiring them to be
proficient in more than one hundred thousands of distinctive and decisive medical codes along with
the mandatory HIPAA 5010 framework that makes ICD-10 functional) would seem even more
distracting to their core-concern of keeping quality of medical services on par with industry
But, with ICD-10 and HIPAA 5010 being indispensable, (the Federal Government’s recent health care
reforms hinting at the wide-spread repercussion that medical practices/hospitals would eventually
face without a compliant ICD-10 and HIPAA 5010 clinical and operational practices) hospital
management have the ominous task of orienting physicians to the ensuing ICD-10 and HIPPA 5010
(scheduled to take effect from October 1, 2013) in a way that does not infringe their primary focus
on best medical practices. As hospital management earnestly considers such ICD-10 and HIPAA 5010
orientation program for their physician community, the following would invariably be the underlying
• Sourcing the learning material that bears the stamp of credibility and professional integrity;
Association of American Professional Coders (AAPC), known for being CMS compliant institute on
coding manuals, should be your recourse for learning materials.
• More than the material itself, the combination of learning medium, online or instructor-led or
both, should also assume equal significance.
• As much as the significance of the preceding two factors, the hospital’s ability to afford for the
technology interface that best renders ICD-10 and HIPAA compliant EHRS would prove to be
the decisive factor in as far as the final outcome of your orientation program.
