Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) July 29, 2011
At next week’s Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS) Conference in Austin, Texas, Edifecs ICD-10 expert Kristine Weinberger is leading a discussion of how best to take advantage of the greater level of condition, diagnosis and treatment data that will be available after healthcare organizations migrate to the ICD-10 code set. The ICD-10 mandate is likely to be one of the most extensive conversion projects any Medicaid organization will face, and it is fraught with risk because it will affect the vast majority of IT systems and many healthcare policies. Recognizing this, the MMIS conference is hosting a wide-ranging series of ICD-10-focused sessions on Sunday, July 31, to help attendees understand the business and clinical implications of ICD-10 compliance.
Weinberger is a recognized industry expert on the ICD-10 code set and how to leverage the new information for maximum benefit, which is an important part of compliance planning. In her session, she will discuss how data analytics are affected by the migration effort.
Edifecs, a leading provider of healthcare software solutions, will also be at the conference to demonstrate its ICD-10 solution, an integrated set of products that work together to support all phases of ICD-10 migration. With the Edifecs ICD-10 solution, health plans and providers can use their own historic data to identify potential ICD-10 risks, which helps healthcare organizations prioritize their remediation and testing efforts.
The annual MMIS Conference brings together thought leaders from the public and private sectors to share ideas and information related to Medicaid systems and initiatives. Attendees will exchange strategies and ideas with their colleagues in the government and private sectors.
