Hospitals are required to implement ICD-10 coding by 2015 -- a major enterprise-wide initiative. Strategic planning must be done, to ensure successful compliance.

We have the ICD-10 project management expertise you need. For hospitals of any size, ICD-10 implementation will be a complex,  time-intensive undertaking involving numerous departments, systems, processes, and staff.

Phoenix provides strong project leadership in this process. Our services include:

Readiness Assessment
We conduct an overall organization readiness assessment and gap analysis, with recommendations and a remediation plan.

Awareness Education
We provide organization-wide ICD-10 awareness education.

Project Plan Development
We work with senior executives and key stakeholders to develop a project plan, project management structure, and cost-effective budget.

Action Plan Development
We collaborate with departmental stakeholders to develop an organization-wide strategy and tactical plan for ICD‑10.

Education and Training
We manage appropriate training for staff, including coders and individuals within all other impacted departments.

Project Management
We develop and manage an interdisciplinary Project Management team to oversee the integrated implementation across multiple systems for all impacted areas.

Vendor and Payer Alignment
We develop collaboration plans with payers and third-party trading partners related to testing, financial analysis, and claims process flow, to ensure an integrated transition process, including having ICD‑10 changes tested and ready on a pre-established timeline.

Quality Assurance and Communications
Once plans have been put into action, we ensure proper testing, and monitor and manage the success of those changes. Our Officer in Charge will  provide regular progress reporting to executive management.
