Bismarck, ND (PRWEB) October 03, 2011
Daymarck, a leading provider of home health care coding and auditing services, is conducting the first study of the home health community’s perceptions and preparations for the ICD-10 conversion. This survey, open between September 9, 2011 and October 6, 2011, is the first part of Daymarck’s ongoing study leading up to implementation in October 2013.
Preliminary results, which include responses from more than 175 home health care professionals, reveal more than half of corporate and branch administration feel that converting to ICD-10 will be more problematic than the conversion to OASIS-C. Two-thirds of the coders surveyed feel ICD-10 conversion will be more problematic, and half of them categorized the problems to be extremely more problematic.
“ICD-10 will be a significant— and challenging— transition for our industry,” says Nick Dobrzelecki, founder and chief executive officer of Daymarck “Gauging the home health community’s perceptions and preparations for the conversion will allow us to better help our customers and prospects through this transition.”
Participants can fill out the survey online at http://tinyurl.com/DaymarckICD10Survey or at Daymark’s booth (#862) at the National Association for Home Care (NAHC) Annual Conference in Las Vegas October 1-5, 2011.
Results of the survey will be posted on Daymark’s website in November.
