ICD-10 resources for small provider practices

The transition to ICD-10 codes is one of several major health IT initiatives being tackled by hospitals and providers in the U.S. Finding the resources to handle this project is a challenge for large hospitals and health care organizations, but smaller practices may have an even harder time getting help.

During a panel discussion at the Massachusetts Medical Society’s special briefing on how to prepare for ICD-10 implementation, presenters were asked what ICD-10 resources are available for small practices that don’t have a team of people employed to help with this transition.

A representative from MMS jumped in to mention the society’s physician practice resource center, which offers consulting services to individual physicians or group practices (at a discounted rate for members).

Panelists also mentioned a number of online ICD-10 resources that are available to help small provider practices:

•    CMS provides a number of resources for providers on its web site, including a detailed ICD-10 implementation guide for small and medium practices;
•    The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) also offers a set of ICD-10 tools on its web site;
•    The American Medical Association offers some basic ICD-10 information;
•    The American Academy of Professional Coders web site provides comprehensive ICD-10 resources geared towards physician practices.
