The US healthcare industry is at the crossroads. On the one hand, we have unprecedented advancements in medicine. On the other, the spiraling costs put at risk basic healthcare for the average American. One of the most significant attempts at reducing the cost of healthcare while improving its quality is a standardization approach. The implementation of ICD-10 is an initial step towards standardization.
The big question: Is the healthcare industry ready for it, especially the provider industry?
Infosys' session identifies the issues associated with the transition to ICD-10, the scope of impact across organizational boundaries, the approaches that organizations are adopting to remediate, and the associated benefits of these approaches.
