FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Atrilogy ICD-10 Consulting Practice to Help Health Providers Comply with New Coding Requirements

Office to address “significant” demand for IT staffing in Arizona and Southwestern United States

Irvine, Calif. – June 13, 2012 – Atrilogy Solutions Group (Atrilogy) is expanding its health care consulting services to help health providers and other health care organizations implement the new diagnosis and procedure codes, referred to as International Classification of Diseases, version 10, or ICD-10.

 

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has recommended that health care organizations be required to begin using ICD-10 by Oct. 1, 2014. Industry experts believe that HHS will formally set the required implementation date in the next few months.

“Expanding our ICD-10 consulting services signifies our continued commitment to deliver a broad set of high-quality ICD-10 related services and solutions,” said Atrilogy CEO/President Dave Charest. “With this move, Atrilogy has one of the broadest sets of ICD-10 consulting services in the market.”

Based on financial impact analyses conducted at multiple health care organizations, those that fail to properly implement ICD-10 will put themselves at significant financial risk, Charest said.  Without proper ICD-10 preparation and risk mitigation, the financial impact to health care organizations could be as high as 5 percent of total revenue per year, or $15 million/year for a typical U.S. hospital, according to Atrilogy and its partner firm Jvion.

Atrilogy and its partners now offer the following core set of ICD-10 consulting services and solutions:

 

  • ICD-10 Assessment Services: includes consulting for ICD-10 awareness, business process, technical and organization impact analysis, financial impact analysis, business partner readiness, gap analysis, strategy and planning.
  • ICD-10 Implementation Services: includes strategy/planning and management for clinical documentation improvement (CDI), computer-assisted coding (CAC), and dual coding efforts, future state technical and business process design, application package upgrades or replacements, custom software conversions, ICD-9/ICD-10 crosswalk development, training and test management.
  • ICD-10 Transition Services: includes business partner testing, go-Iive planning and support, and problem resolution.
  • ICD-10 Collaboration Services: includes management of regionalized and organization specific ICD-10 collaboration strategies and processes. 

 

Atrilogy also announces the following ICD-10-related strategic partnerships:

 

  • Prime HIM Consulting has established an agreement with Atrilogy to provide joint ICD-10 and HIM-related consulting.  Prime HIM Consulting is led by Debi Primeau, MA, RHIA, FAHIMA.  Ms. Primeau is a fellow of AHIMA and current president of the California Health Information Association (CHIA). 
  • Atrilogy will now partner with Jvion Health Solutions, a leader in health care compliance solutions, to take to market icdcomplete—a comprehensive, cloud-based software suite that enables and automates the entire remediation process.

Atrilogy’s ICD-10 consulting services are led by Mark Jahn, vice president of the Health Care Practice. Jahn helped establish and lead the Minnesota ICD-10 Collaborative, one of the first of its kind in the country.
