2016 Fourth Quarter Checklist

2016 Fourth Quarter Checklist

As we enter the Fourth Quarter of 2016 make sure the following important items are on your check list:

  • October 1, 2016 – every year this date marks the date that new CPT and ICD codes will be implemented. This year there will be several significant changes to ICD10 codes. Get familiar now so that you do not end up with denials.
  • Meaningful Use Stage 2 – Stay tuned as we await the finalization of a 90 day rule, which will allow providers to attest for 90 days instead of the entire calendar year
  • Review and Reflect and Revamp – take a look at 2016 now, not in January. Can you change anything within your current work flow? What issues did you face and do you feel they were handled the best possible way? How can you make improvements for continued/improved success? What went well this year? Are you looking to expand? How will you do that?

Start now to be prepared for the end of year and beyond!
