In accordance to a WEDI survey, healthcare stakeholders were capable to smoothly transformation to ICD-10 due to EHR and practice management networks that motivated ICD-10 functionality.
While the majority of healthcare stakeholders have completely transformed to ICD-10, several contributors and vendors are crediting the smooth changeover to their electronic health records and practice management networks.
In accordance to the WEDI ICD-10 Post-Implementation Survey, healthcare stakeholders informed that the transition and execution of the ICD-10 was overall a positive experience, particularly with the assistance of the EHR systems that already had ICD-10 functionality.
“All contributor respondents had either an EHR or practice management system however a very minor number responded that the product wasn’t delivered in enough time or lacked anticipated functionality,” wrote Jean Narcisi, Chair of WEDI, in a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services. “For the most part, having these devices in place simplified the transformation because of the inclusion of ICD-10 codes and mapping recommendations.”
In addition to capable EHR networks, healthcare stakeholders also claimed that initial planning of the budget and staff resource acquisition assisted to the ease the industry into ICD-10 implementation. The survey participants also referred an increase in external and internal communication along with ICD-10 experimenting as positive outcomes of the new system.
