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:
Atrilogy also announces the following ICD-10-related strategic partnerships:
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.
Established in 2000, Atrilogy provides health care and IT consulting and staffing services to clients on a national basis. Atrilogy Solutions Group has a long and distinguished track record of delivering high-quality health care consulting resources and enterprise resource planning (ERP) consulting services. The firm has offices in Irvine, Calif., and Denver, Colo.
