ICD-9 to ICD-10 Transition

The ICD-9 to ICD-10 transition will have a huge impact on the health care system, and health care organizations on all levels need to be ready for this change. AMS staff are being trained in ICD-10 and will be able to assist in this transition on all levels – from training coders up through managing the transition on an organization-wide basis. AMS is able to perform the following key steps in order to create a smooth transition:

  • Train coders in the ICD-10 transition
  • Organize a steering committee to manage the transition for full organizational buy-in
  • Identify necessary input required from departmental staff
  • Create a plan and process map for the transition period
  • Manage implementation of the new system
  • Establish and achieve deadlines for full go-live status
