Healthcare providers will start using ICD-10 instead of ICD-9 codes on October 1, 2015 (that is less than 3 months from now). ICD-10 expands on ICD-9 codes to reflect advances in medicine, which means that using ICD-10 codes will allow doctors to capture more details about their patients’ health conditions and hospital procedures. Implementation of these details will lead to a better record of a patient’s history. This in turn can lead to better care for patients across different providers and over time. ICD-10 is thought to be more detailed, more specific, and it changes everything. The question is “are you ready?”
If you’re still not confident with your skills and are looking for ICD 10 training certification courses online and willing to expand your horizons, get a higher pay scale, get hired quickly, preferred by most physicians, then you should start to consider training yourself on ICD 10 and pass the ICD 10 proficiency assessment exam with confidence.
