Hint: it’s not time to sit back and relax.
It’s more important than ever to use this time to continue planning for the change. Armed with the right facts, factors, and software features, you could change ICD-10 from a pain point to a bonus.
- Take a moment to consider who in your practice needs to know the ICD-10 codes.
- Identify when your practice can spare time for education.
- Identify if a change in workflow will be part of your solution.
- Consider using technology to ease the transition. An EHR system could make a big difference to your practice, adding benefits like mobility, reduced exam times, and practice management integration.
Don’t get overwhelmed, the advantage of this delay is additional time. Now you can consider one thing at a time and create a plan of that is feasible, not frenzied.
