Chicago, IL (Vocus/PRWEB) March 30, 2011
The American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Central Office announces its support of the ICD-10 Summit: Strategies and Tactics for Industry Success, being held April 11-12, 2011, in Baltimore, Maryland. The two-day event is expected to attract more than 400 senior leaders from all major stakeholder groups, including providers, payers, vendors, and consultants. AHA Central Office is proud to be a collaborating organization with American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
Nelly Leon-Chisen, Director of Coding and Classification at the AHA will participate in a panel session entitled Transitioning to ICD-10: Translations and Maps for Applications with representatives from 3M and Resolution Health. This panel will discuss translation and conversion strategies integrated with providers, payers, vendors, and trading partners.
The ICD-10 Summit is the premier health care event dedicated to the exploration of the challenges and opportunities represented in the transition to the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding systems. The central message is that a well-planned, well-managed process – including thorough risk assessment, implementation planning, and detailed go-live preparations – will yield a smooth, successful transition. Underlying this message is the concept that the transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS should be regarded and managed as an advantage, rather than simply achieving compliance with the terms of the regulation.
Registrants of the ICD-10 Summit who are affiliated with AHA Central Office may reference coupon code MX5598 to pay only $849, which represents a $200 organizational discount. AHIMA members will pay the AHIMA member rate.
