In preparation for the transition to ICD-10 coding standards on Oct. 1, 2014, MedAssets has been working diligently to complete necessary modifications to our solution suites affected by the transition, including the Claims Management, Denials Management and Collections Management solutions.
As the implementation deadline draws nearer, we continue to work closely with clients, partners and payors to make all required changes and perform quality assurance testing. And, all MedAssets solutions impacted by the ICD-10 transition will be fully functional and compliant with the new standard well ahead of the deadline.
Beyond preparing our products for the upcoming change, we offer targeted services and solutions to assist healthcare organizations in leveraging more effectively the data in the ICD-9 and ICD-10 code sets. These services and solutions are focused on helping to improve transactional data analysis, payor relationship management and the healthcare encounter communications critical to optimizing reimbursement and cash flow.
