Someday, I hope our grandchildren will look back at 2014 and say, "Oh, remember all of those crazy things people used to do with silly ICD codes?" My feelings about the impending ICD-10 delay are mixed but lean towards disappointment. I feel particularly bad for all those practices who paid big bucks to their vendors to get "ICD-10 ready!" and then have nothing to show for it. I just hope doctors don't waste the extra year they have in place...but who am I fooling?
In a piece of gov't sponsored good news, check out the Security Audit Tool from HHS. Even if you aren't gunning for MU money, walking through an assessment of your practice security protocols and processes is a worthwhile endeavor.
I am going to be busy this year speaking for a variety of pediatric groups. You can always catch up with the latest schedule in the Events section at the bottom of our website, but the agenda so far is below. Please stop by and say hello!
Again, please stop by and say hello!
