PASADENA, CA, January 13, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Prime Clinical
, a leading provider of clinical data management solutions, is announcing that their practice management software is ready for the transition to ICD-10. All HIPAA-covered healthcare entities are required to switch to the new code set by October 1, 2014, meaning that their EHR software and medical billing systems must be compliant. Any claims submitted with ICD-9 codes for services provided on or after the October compliance deadline will not be paid.
Developed by the World Health Organization, the International Classification of Diseases is a diagnostic coding system used to classify diseases and other health problems. The 10th edition replaces outdated ICD-9 codes which were developed more than 40 years ago and often produce inaccurate or incomplete data.
Prime Clinical has already started working with physicians to install and test their ICD-10-ready, EHR-integrated practice management software. This includes testing transactions, claims submissions, eligibility verification, reporting, and more. Preparing ahead of time for the transition to ICD-10 ensures readiness and guarantees that claims can be processed correctly without affecting revenue or workflow.
