The ICD-10 Trading Partner Community – Why trust matters
In an article published at ICD10monitor.com, our expert emphasizes the need for a meaningful and collaborative full trading partner strategy that must establish a definition of ICD-10 readiness. This will help ensure an industry-wide ICD-10 compliance. The strategy will be unique in that it will guide how the trading community makes decisions about mapping standards and payer clinical editing standards and criteria, says the author, a healthcare expert focused on compliance issues. Such standards and criteria must be aligned with providers’ programs for clinical documentation as well as with the metrics commonly used (prior to testing) to measure and evaluate ICD-10 compliance.
