TriZetto Corporation today announced that its Provider Solutions Business unit has released a new tool that simplifies several important steps for providers’ ICD-10 preparation and helps reduce the risk of delayed or inaccurate reimbursement due to miscoded claims.
With just a few clicks, TriZetto Provider Solutions’ Top Codes Report charts out a provider’s most frequently billed procedure and diagnosis code pairs. Providers can then use a cross-walking tool, such as CMS’ GEMs or AAPC’s specialty crosswalks, to identify which ICD-10 codes correlate with their top ICD-9 codes.
“Understanding which ICD-10 codes your practice is most likely to use, and the degree of detail you will need in your patient charts to accurately assign these, is an important part of preparing for ICD,” said Jackie Griffin, associate vice president of client services at TriZetto Provider Solutions. “By comparing a list of the ICD-10 codes to patient charts, providers will be able to determine if their charts currently provide enough clinical documentation to correlate to the appropriate ICD-10 codes. If there is not enough documentation now, they can focus their ICD-10 training on preparing staff to record the necessary clinical documentation.”
The Top Codes Report is just one of the ways TriZetto Provider Solutions supports providers for ICD-10 preparedness. The clearinghouse introduced a secure ICD-10 self-test portal nearly a year in advance of the ICD-10 implementation deadline to ensure that all clients and partners receive dedicated time and attention from the team to test their ICD-10-coded claims. In addition, unlike many other clearinghouses, the company will continue to accept print image files even after the ICD-10 implementation, which will ease the transition for practices by eliminating the cost and hassle of upgrading to a 5010 claim format.
“At TriZetto Provider Solutions, we understand that the transition to ICD-10 can be overwhelming, so we are connecting providers with valuable insights and resources to help them manage this process more efficiently,” said Griffin. “One way we do this is by tapping the payer professionals at TriZetto to develop tools and help providers understand how to meet payers’ coding requirements to provide for more accurate reimbursement during and after the ICD-10 transition. The transition to a new code set is one of the biggest challenges for the healthcare industry in our lifetime, so collaboration between all healthcare entities will be vital to success.”
As part of its educational outreach, TriZetto Provider Solutions offers a number of ICD-10 resources, including a free ICD-10 Implementation Planning Worksheet that lists preparation steps for transitioning to ICD-10. Providers can find other resources to help support their ICD-10 implementation, including videos, webinars, FAQs and advice at www.gatewayedi.com/icd10.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
