Jvion’s assessment gave us the tools we needed to invest in setting up our facility for success well before the ICD-10 deadline.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) face unique ICD-10 conversion challenges. While the code change doesn’t have a direct financial impact for these providers, it still poses risks to cost-based reimbursements, operations, and resources. These risks are compounded by the resource and financial constraints faced by most CAHs; they simply do not have the available cash or people to support all of the activities required by the mandate. The underlying message is that CAHs need to have a plan and start executing that plan now to avoid potential negative impacts.
Recognizing CAH ICD-10 challenges, Jvion developed Critical Care ICD-10—a software-enabled solution to drive risk mitigation, automation, and cost savings into the assessment, conversion, and post-conversion phases of ICD-10. The offering comprises three solutions:
- Critical Care ICD-10 Assessment: a 2-4 week assessment that prioritizes conversion, training, and staffing efforts through a financial risk assessment, provides detailed visibility into inpatient and outpatient coding impacts, and delivers ways to reduce unspecified coding risks
- Critical Care ICD-10 Conversion: an end-to-end solution that relies on automation, mapping technologies, and testing accelerators to reduce demands on CAH resources and the overall conversion timeline
- Critical Care ICD-10 Post-Conversion Support: affordable, cloud-based software services to support post-conversion needs including custom crosswalks, decision support and rule authoring, and dual coding
Jvion has already delivered measureable results to CAH organizations through Critical Care ICD-10. “Our facility was able to move from the ‘how to’ stage in the implementation process of ICD-10 to the hands on management process in a relatively short period of time,” said John Rau, President and CEO of a Midwestern CAH. “Jvion’s assessment gave us the tools we needed to invest in setting up our facility for success well before the ICD-10 deadline.”
