Agencies need to prepare in order to succeed when the monumental shift to ICD-10 in 2014 finally occurs. Daymarck can help by providing medical coding support and other services so that agencies can focus on what they do best – providing patient care.
Bismarck, ND (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
Daymarck, a leading provider of home health care coding and auditing services, today announced the launch of its ICD-10 survey dedicated to home care professionals. For the second year in a row, Daymarck is conducting a research study on ICD-10 implementation preparedness.
The results will help the industry gain important insights as it transitions to ICD-10 in 2014. The survey is being conducted both online and in-person at the 2012 National Association of Home Care and Hospice Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida from Oct. 21-25, 2012 at Daymarck’s booth #316.
Daymarck’s 2011 survey showed that home care professionals were not prepared for ICD-10. According to responses from more than 235 home care professionals in the first survey, 76 percent had either not begun planning for ICD-10 conversion or were in preliminary stages of planning. Only 3 percent had developed a formal plan and were beginning to implement.
“It will be interesting to see if there has been any movement in the last 12 months in terms of ICD-10 preparedness,” says Nick Dobrzelecki, founder and chief executive officer of Daymarck. “Agencies need to prepare in order to succeed when the monumental shift to ICD-10 in 2014 finally occurs. Daymarck can help by providing medical coding support and other services so that agencies can focus on what they do best – providing excellent patient care.”
Home care professionals are encouraged to take the survey until Nov. 8, 2012 at http://s.zoomerang.com/s/DaymarckICD10. Participants will be automatically registered to win a $100 gift card to Shutterfly.
