ICD-10 Training Leaves Health Care Leaders “Shell Shocked”

Many health care leaders believe that their organizations have the move to the new medical coding standard ICD-10 under control.  Then they attend a training session.   “When we complete the training, many organizations are shell shocked,” said an executive with a leading ICD-10 training firm.   Most have completely under estimated the time, cost, and skills required to perform the ICD-10 conversion and implementation.

“That’s where an ICD-10 Assessment can help,”  said Michael Arrigo of No World Borders.  An assessment by an outside team of experts can help smooth the transition by identifying risks early, assessing team skills, and quickly and efficiently searching for systems, processes, and assumptions that may not be visible enough to the stakeholders responsible for ICD-10.
