ICD-10 Readiness

Although the implementation of ICD-10-CM/PCS will ultimately improve health care information capture, complying with the new regulation will impose significant demands on your organization. The process of transitioning from 14,000 to approximately 70,000 codes can be an overwhelming challenge to your HIM staff, and the financial ramifications to your facility can be dramatic if they are not adequately prepared in advance of the compliance deadline. Don’t let the learning curve associated with the ICD-10 transition put your cash flow and financial stability at risk!

Cybergistics is ready to assist your organization with a practical, gradual and affordable ICD-10 readiness program designed to minimize the negative impacts of ICD-10 through early planning and customized training programs. Cybergistics staff are uniquely qualified to assist our clients with this implementation. Our professionals include AHIMA-certified trainers and HIM experts that have practical, real-world experience in information processing, coding, revenue-cycle management, compliance and clinical documentation.
