Technology 911: EHR Implementation and ICD-10 Conversion

Archived Webinar


This archived webinar offers instruction on how to manage and overcome important challenges during EHR implementation and ICD-10 conversion.

Agenda

  • Part one addresses how EHR implementation can affect the culture of your organization and the tools you need to survive the culture shock brought about by new processes.
  • Part two addresses ICD-10 conversion and how it will affect virtually every aspect of medical practice technology, especially your EHR system. Even though ICD-10 conversion has been temporarily postponed, there’s still a lot of work to do to make sure you’re on the road to a successful ICD-10 launch.

This webinar will help you to:

  • Understand how your reaction to new EHR processes impacts your team.
  • Anticipate your team members’ reactions and harness their strengths in order to implement your EHR system successfully.
  • Understand the technical impact that implementing ICD-10 codes will have on the technology in use by most medical practices, including EHRs, picture archiving and communication systems and coding software.
  • Anticipate items that vendors will not tell you about the ICD-10 upgrade.
  • Plan ahead, assess impact and engage your vendor in a meaningful discussion to ensure a successful transition.
