Helping Critical Access Hospitals Address ICD-10

Share Article

Jvion recently launched Critical Care ICD-10—an affordable, tailored ICD-10 conversion solution for Critical Access Hospitals (CAH). The offering supports all aspects of ICD-10 in a way that addresses the unique challenges faced by CAHs, reduces risk, increases automation, and drives cost savings.

Jvion’s assessment gave us the tools we needed to invest in setting up our facility for success well before the ICD-10 deadline.

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.”
