ICD-10 Survey: More than 36 percent of finance healthcare professionals cite staffing and training capacity as primary barrier to implementation
(Denver, CO) – As the October 1, 2014 compliance deadline approaches, the conversation surrounding ICD-10 implementation has grown. Physician practices that fail to properly prepare will experience increased claims rejections and will find it difficult to keep pace with other practices. At the same time, organizations that are properly prepared will see an unprecedented opportunity to prosper.
The JRP Group, a national talent recruitment firm that targets and places elite non-clinical healthcare professionals, recently conducted a survey on ICD-10 compliance among independent and hospital-affiliated physician practices. The findings revealed that more than a third of those polled said their organizations are not at all familiar with ICD-10.
The survey was conducted this month among a variety of finance healthcare professionals working in clinics, physicians’offices and hospitals of varying sizes.
“ICD-10 is one of the biggest healthcare changes that America has encountered in recent history,”said Steve Tutwiler, vice president of staffing at JRP Group. “Making sure your practice is ready can be an overwhelming undertaking, which is why we were not surprised to see that 20 percent of respondents did not think their organizations will be ready for October 1. Accordingly, JRP Group will be offering Ready10™ paired with our specialty consulting services.”
