Woodbridge, NJ (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
iPatientCare, Inc., a pioneer in mHealth and cloud based ambulatory EHR, Integrated Practice Management and Patient Portal Solutions, expresses its views and concerns to Congressional vote that delays the ICD-10 compliance date to October 01, 2015.
"A year’s delay will ease the burden for some organizations coping with ongoing financial pressures, and parallel regulatory mandates. If we are to improve patient outcomes and safety, enable modern-day research, promote innovations in healthcare delivery, and achieve cost-saving efficiencies, the healthcare industry must have an access to high quality information afforded by ICD-10 coded data. We believe ICD-10 is important for efficient delivery of quality care and emerging value-based payment models,” said Sean Pandya, Clinical Application Specialist, iPatientCare, Inc.
With the delay in place, we insist our customers to focus on surrounding reform initiatives, including Meaningful Use stage 2 and encourage them to proceed with plans and preparations in full force, said Vijayan Tayyil, Implementation Project Manager, iPatientCare Inc. He further added, “Our focus remains on business priorities in helping our clients, partners and payers with comprehensive efforts to support their transition to ICD-10.”
“iPatientCare remains committed to be focused of preparing customers for 2014 regulatory changes; ICD-10 implementation is an important piece of value-based care models and most importantly delivering quality care to patients; therefore, it should remain a priority for the healthcare industry,” said Kedar Mehta, CTO, iPatintCare, Inc.
