NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) and a leading provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions announced its NextGen® Ambulatory EHR version 5.8 solution meets the latest ICD-10 standards. The Company also announced a variety of resources to help both clients and non-clients successfully transition to ICD-10.
In March 2013, NextGen Healthcare became one of the first Electronic Health Record (EHR) vendors in the nation to achieve ONC-HIT 2014 Edition certification as a complete EHR, for both ambulatory and inpatient settings. This certification included meeting criteria for both ICD-10 and Meaningful Use Stage 2.
The transition to ICD-10 has a substantial impact on documentation of clinical care, physician productivity and practice reimbursement, and successful transition requires coordination between providers and their respective vendor.
“We realize the complexity of ICD-10 and the challenges facing providers as they transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 diagnosis and procedure coding. This transition can potentially have a devastating effect on the financial health of U.S. healthcare providers,” said Michael Lovett, executive vice president and general manager for NextGen Healthcare. “To aid in mitigating that risk, we have developed ICD-10 compliant, Meaningful Use Stage 2-ready solutions and significant resources to help our clients succeed. Sharing some key educational and testing portions of our ICD-10 transition solutions and knowledge with the industry supports our long-term strategic direction toward a more open and accessible suite of solutions.”
In addition to its client-specific programs, NextGen Healthcare clients and all other interested health IT stakeholders seeking ICD-10 transition support will now have access to the following NextGen Healthcare ICD-10 transition educational resources and tools:
- Free Webinar Series: Get on track for ICD-10! A new monthly webinar series where industry experts will address key elements of preparation and implementation.
- eBOOK: Make ICD-10 easier! The basics of ICD-10 versus ICD-9 are provided easily with tips on how to get control of tens of thousands of new codes; dual coding; and, code mapping as well as how to determine EHR vendor preparedness.
Comparison Testing Tool:
- The NextGen Healthcare ICD-9/ICD-10 Comparison Utility is an educational and testing tool used by providers to help familiarize themselves with the mapping of ICD-10 codes to the ICD-9 codes most commonly used on a day-to-day basis. The ICD-9/ICD-10 Comparison Utility allows for the analysis of the 837 claim file, providing a snapshot of current billing using ICD-9 and the impact of changing to ICD-10 codes.
“The transition to ICD-10 is a challenging process for every provider and healthcare facility in the nation, and we want to help clients and non-clients alike ensure a seamless, easy and successful transition,” added Lovett. “As an industry leader, NextGen Healthcare is taking many steps to help providers stay calm and succeed with ease.”
