I’m happy to present the following information from Suzanne MacEwan of Healthcare Information Technologies. I had the pleasure of meeting with Suzanne recently to look at two programs that I believe can really benefit practices who are looking for help with ICD-10 preparation.
The ICD-10 Virtual Implementation Consultant (VIC) is a project management software system that guides users step-by-step through learning, planning, organizing, implementing, and analyzing the ICD-10 transition. It works as a “virtual consultant” and includes all the tools you will need for a successful transition, including budgets, spreadsheets, educational videos, organization questionnaires, and impact assessments.
It is easy to stay organized because VIC tracks project progress and allows the user to assign and email tasks. All relevant information materials are easily printed or distributed. Covered topics include policies, procedures, processes, relationships with other organizations, and even IT. Data is automatically populated to related projects so analysis can instantly be performed. It can be edited and scaled to fit the custom needs of any practice.
The ICD-10 Virtual Consultant also includes a conversion and training tool with GEMs mapping functionality to assist in performing chart audits and converting your practice’s top diagnosis codes. It can be used to convert codes bi-directionally, look up codes by description or keywords, and store specialty specific “favorites” lists. Unlike simple conversion tools, it can be used to educate physicians on the new documentation elements required for ICD-10, perform chart audits, and create flash cards and other training tools. It saves hours of time it takes to manually convert codes, while giving you coding tips, and engaging your physicians in the ICD-10 transition.
For more information about this unique software or to see a demo, please contact Suzanne MacEwan at 904-710-7062 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
