San Diego, CA – June 24th, 2015 – ChiroTouch™, the nation’s leader in chiropractic software, now offers an ICD-10 Readiness Quiz on its website to help chiropractors determine their level of readiness for the October 1st ICD-10 implementation deadline.“October 1st is right around the corner, so time is running out for members of the chiropractic profession to implement an effective plan to transition to ICD-10 with minimal interruption in cash flow,” said Robert Moberg, CEO of ChiroTouch. “Our online quiz is one of many tools we offer to help our clients determine the steps they still need to take to become ICD-10 compliant before the new coding system goes live.”
ChiroTouch’s online ICD-10 Readiness Quiz requires about two minutes to complete and provides immediate feedback to help chiropractors assess their readiness to adopt, transition, and start using ICD-10 codes in their practices. The purpose of the quiz is to expose implementation considerations chiropractors may not have been aware of, including making sure their EHR has been updated to allow for the migration of ICD-10 codes into their systems, knowing what to do if a carrier denies a claim due to incorrect ICD-10 codes, and creating a clear pathway to crosswalk from ICD-9 to ICD-10 for their active patients.
“No one wants to be unprepared for the October 1st deadline, but developing a plan to account for the complexities of ICD-10 is daunting,” added Moberg. “Our hope is that our online ICD-10 Readiness Quiz, along with our other ICD-10 preparation tools, will serve as a much-needed reality check for our clients and guide them through this complex transition with confidence.”
