ICD-10 Transition

ICD-10 Transition

Abstract

Regulations were published on January 16th 2009, which finalized the proposal to replace the ICD-9-CM (Clinical modification) code set with ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS with a compliance date of October 1st 2013 in United States of America. This came as a big relief for healthcare industry who was struggling to figure out ways to comply with the previous date of October 1st 2011.

This transition will affect both payer and provider organizations enormously having impact on most of the IT applications, which will include code sets, interfaces and reports used in clinical, financial and quality analysis, organization training needs etc. All these will lead to significant expenditure for healthcare industry.

Excerpts from the Paper
During the impact analysis phase HCL consultants analyze the impact of the change on enterprise, policies, processes and entities. HCL uses its eXact Methodology (eXplore, Analyze, Craft and Transform) during this phase to calculate the impact across all the business-applicationtechnology-data of the entire enterprise and accordingly define theTO-BE landscape. 
 
Once the system changes are implemented, provider and payer applications will have to be tested thoroughly before patient medical data can be entered in the application. HCL helps the organization to generate test data for testing of various applications for different scenarios and will conduct the testing as per the defined testing methodology.
