Woodbridge, NJ, (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
iPatientCare, Inc., a pioneer in mHealth and cloud based ambulatory EHR, integrated Practice Management and Patient Portal solutions announced the successful implementation of its ICD-10 ready EHR and Practice Management System among its user base. It further announced the availability of the upgrade and related training/implementation assistance for a smooth transition to ICD-10 to those users who are yet to transition over to the ICD-10 ready version.
After two years’ delay, it appears that decks are set for all HIPAA-covered healthcare entities to switch to the new code set by October 1, 2015, meaning that their EHR software and medical billing systems must be compliant to ICD-10 coding. Any claims submitted with ICD-9 codes for services provided on or after the October 1, 2105 will not be paid for. The transition to ICD-10 has a substantial impact on documentation of clinical care, physician productivity and practice reimbursement, and requires coordination between providers and their respective vendor.
“The transition to ICD-10 is a challenging process for all healthcare providers and their offices. iPatientCare’s EHR and Billing System provides dual coding capabilities, and hence, our users do not have to wait until ICD-10 implementation deadline.”, said Udayan Mandavia, President/CEO, iPatientCare. “Realizing the complexity of ICD-10 and the challenges faced by Providers in transiting from ICD-9 to ICD-10 coding, iPatientCare has invested substantially in developing intelligent software utilities that automate this transition. In fact, many of the new installations of iPatientCare are for the Providers who switched to iPatientCare because of its ICD-10 readiness and these fast-track utilities.”, he added further.
Kedar Mehta, CTO, iPatientCare commented, “ICD-10 transition can potentially have an overwhelming effect on the financial health of U.S. healthcare providers. To support industry transition to ICD-10, we have developed ICD-10 compliant, Meaningful Use Stage 2-ready solutions and allocated significant resources to help iPatientCare users for successful transition to ICD-10.”
The ICD-10 compliance date had been previously delayed on September 5, 2012 when the deadline was extended from October 1, 2013 to October 1, 2014. On July 31, 2014, HHS published a final rule extending the compliance date to October 1, 2015.
