ICD-10 transition: Overcoming bottlenecks of neutrality risks

Despite the one-year extension on the ICD-10 compliance deadline, many organizations are still struggling to comprehend the real drivers of neutrality risk. The far-reaching implications of the delay will ultimately hinder the efforts of organizations to manage compliance on a risk-free basis.

The present-day myopic view for neutrality assessment leads to an internal vacuum. Organizations largely suffer as a result without adequate visibility into the actual causes. However, with increased maturity of the ICD-10 learning curve, pragmatic organizations are changing their notion on neutrality. They are increasingly recognizing it as a more complex problem. With this understanding, organizations are trying to address the issue at an enterprise level to achieve neutrality comprehensively through financial optimization, clinical integrity, and operational stability.
