MTBC’s ICD-10 Compliance Roadmap

The International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Edition, or ICD-10 is a coding system that went into effect in the U.S. healthcare industry on Oct. 1, 2015. It is used to standardize codes for medical conditions and procedures. The ICD-10 codes have enabled more accurate medical billing by offering many more classification options compared to those found in its predecessor ICD-9.

For thousands of physicians and other clinicians in the United States, the change from ICD-9 to ICD-10 was a major concern demanding time, preparation, and a lengthy period of adjustment. MTBC has proven to be an ideal ICD-10 compliance partner and remained fully committed in meeting all applicable time frames for ICD-10 compliance prior to October 2015.

We have worked closely with our clients to ensure their smooth transition to ICD-10. To find out more about ICD-10 and its latest updates, please visit the CMS site.

During the transition to ICD-10 period, we had implemented an ICD-10 adoption strategy that mainly focused on:

  • A mapping solution to ensure that our practices can look up ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes as well as ICD-10 to ICD-9 codes.
  • Targeted external testing with our clearing houses, such as Change Healthcare.
  • Targeted external testing with payer-organizations.
  • Internal ICD‐10 testing to ensure proper implementation of processes & policies.
  • Providing adequate guidance and training to our clients for a smooth transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10.
  • Extensive training on an organizational scale to equip our workforce with the required knowledge and competency.

Our streamlined business processes and technological solutions seamlessly accommodated this coding shift. By October 1, 2015, the ICD-10 modifications to our practice management and EHR product suite were completed and fully functional. This has helped guarantee our clients’ successful and hassle-free transition to ICD-10.
