ICD-10 Transition Training

According to an ICD-10 industry readiness survey released by the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI), only 25 percent of the providers surveyed had begun external testing with partners on ICD-10 claims. The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 is inevitable, even if the implementation date has been a bit unreliable. With nearly 19 times more procedure codes and five times more diagnosis codes, preparing your organization for ICD-10 requires a substantial investment in training, education and systems preparation. It is an organization transformation and not just a coding change.

Ensuring a smooth transition with minimal disruption in quality of care, productivity and reimbursement is crucial. Choosing the right partner to ensure ICD-10 success is equally essential. AMS consultants come from the frontlines of healthcare, with experience in project management, compliance, auditing and as certified coders in organizations like yours. Our trainers maintain credentials from industry-leading coding certification organizations, like the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
