As of October 1, 2015, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services requires the use of the ICD-10 classification for the documentation of medical diagnoses and procedures. Elite’s certified medical scribes provide worry-free solutions to assist providers and medical facilities with ICD-10 transition.
Our certified medical scribes are expertly trained in ICD-10 documentation, and can help update your H&P and procedure templates for ICD-10 compliance.
To assist certified medical scribes and physician partners in hospitals and clinics, Elite Medical Scribes’ free ICD-10 Lookup Tool allows scribes to quickly find precise and accurate ICD-10 codes within 5-10 seconds.
The tool provides additional search and drill down capability to identify the correct ICD-10 code from over 68,000 unique codes. This helps clinicians quickly match their diagnosis to the most appropriate ICD-10 code. This same technology also notifies a scribe when there are additional ICD-10 documentation requirements, which will eliminate any down-codes. This tool promotes scribe quality assurance and aims to generate strong ROI.
This tool is available online and is a cloud-based, software-as-service application. All Elite employed certified medical scribes have been trained on the tool and are ready to help clinicians with the ICD-10 transition.
