William J. Rudman, PhD, RHIA; Kathryn Jackson, RHIA; Patricia Shank; and Darlene Zuccarelli
With the implementation of ICD-10, the number of diagnosis codes for healthcare services has increased from 13,000 to 68,000, and the number of procedure codes has also increased. While the new codes allow for greater specificity of reporting diagnoses and care delivered, has the new code set resulted in a number of costs including training, loss of productivity and system changes and updates? Findings from this study will provide valuable insight into the perceived impact of ICD-10 implementation on productivity and accuracy for coding professionals.
