AOD Software Passes National ICD-10 Testing

AOD Software, delivering the industry’s leading integrated software solution to long-term care providers, announced today the successful participation in the national ICD-10 testing by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) with clean 999 ACK and 277CA claim detail reports. AOD is one of the first long-term care providers to pass the CMS ICD-10 testing.

AOD’s solution suite, Answers™, is composed of clinical, financial, operational and point of sale solutions, and AOD is focused on confirming that all relevant components are prepared for the migration to the ICD-10 code set. Such integration of solutions allows customers to increase productivity, reduce errors, cut costs and manage a practice without overwhelming confusion or concern about industry transitions.

“AOD is committed to providing our clients with the tools they need to successfully prepare for this transition,” said Charles George, CTO and VP of Research and Development. “Proactively participating in the national CMS testing was a priority, to help provide our clients with certainty that the product is ready. We want to help our clients approach the October 1st deadline with confidence. As with other regulations, we have focused on being on the leading edge of preparations so our customers are fully prepared, and the fact that Answers™ was the first Electronic Health Record to receive CCHIT® certification for LTPAC and achieve ONC-ATCB Modular Certification is another example of our forward-thinking to provide our clients with the best product and services within the industry.”

AOD aims to provide a seamless transition that is highly customizable to all customers’ needs. As part of that effort, ICD-9 codes will be available, along with the new ICD-10 codes, throughout the transition period. Embedded interactive mapping will provide codes for users, even when multiple codes are available for a specific case. AOD will continue to partner with its customers, providing educational tools and on-demand training, in order to make the process as seamless as possible.

To pass the ICD-10 test, two separate trials are performed by the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC). First, the 999 ACK checks the file format (ASCx12) and the NPI (National Provider Identifier) header segments for HIPAA compliance. Before submitting the UB04 for payment, validity of 277CA transmission reports is checked. In this case, test files were submitted by the Live Oak team to the Medicare contractor, Novitas Solutions, Inc. As a result, AOD’s UB04 file format, with ICD-10 diagnosis codes, passed CMS testing criteria and was ready for payment.
