ICD-10 Conference Sponsored by No World Borders

Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) conference highlights health care reform technology issues HIPAA 5010 and ICD-10

FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- No World Borders, Inc., a leading health care IT and management consulting firm, today announced that it is a sponsor of the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) conference in Fairfax, today through July 15, 2010.

Michael F. Arrigo, president and CEO of No World Borders, said, “We think today is an important day for the health care industry, as US Health and Human Services (HHS) releases guidelines on Meaningful Use, which describe what every hospital and physician must do to comply with new medical information standards and receive approximately $20 billion in bonus Medicare payments for the adoption of electronic health records.” Both of these must be in place for every health care company in the U.S. by October 1, 2013.” Arrigo continued, “We strongly recommend that companies perform an ICD-10 assessment as well as a review of their HIPAA 5010 and other key initiatives using expertise that can help reduce risk and ensure they meet deadlines.

“The new Meaningful Use, electronic data interchange and medical coding standards have pervasive impact on every health care provider and insurance company in the United States. This event brings together some of the best minds in the industry regarding where the future of health care and health IT is going,” Arrigo concluded.

No World Borders offers whitepapers about the regulatory issues and opportunities for ICD-10, HIPAA 5010, CORE Operating Rules and Meaningful Use on its web site at http://www.noworldborders.com/icd-10/ To schedule a consultation with the company regarding a ICD-10 assessment, a review of HIPAA 5010 implementation plans, or an evaluation of Meaningful Use as it applies to your company, please email [email protected]
