This article will help organizations quickly assess and select their ICD-10 financial risk assessment provider so that they are prepared for and can mitigate ICD-10’s potential reimbursement impacts.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 26, 2012
With activity around ICD-10 gearing up, providers are looking for ICD-10 financial risk assessment services as a precursor or part of their overall assessment activities. But ICD-10 financial risk assessments are relatively new in the market making it hard to find, evaluate, and select the right vendor.
In "A Provider’s Guide to Developing an ICD-10 Financial Risk Assessment Request for Proposal" Jvion and HIMSS deliver recommendations on how to effectively choose an ICD-10 financial risk assessment vendor. These steps cover four broad areas in the selection process:
- Understanding what an ICD-10 financial risk assessment is, what it delivers, and who the key players are in the market
- Establishing ICD-10 financial risk assessment objectives
- Understanding the outputs of an ICD-10 financial risk assessment and how they align to an organization’s objectives
- Understanding who needs to be involved in issuing and evaluating an ICD-10 financial risk assessment RFP
Included in the article is a list of sample vendor questions/requirements broken out by topic.
“We wanted to address a gap in the industry,” explained Dr. Steven Gerst—Jvion Chief Medical Officer and one of the article’s co-authors. “It is hard to evaluate any new offering. And with ICD-10, providers are anxious to get their assessment and conversion efforts underway. This article will help organizations quickly assess and select their ICD-10 financial risk assessment provider so that they are prepared for and can mitigate ICD-10’s potential reimbursement impacts.”
