KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. - Jan. 16, 2014 - PRLog -- ADVANCE is hosting a free online conference focusing on the upcoming ICD-10 transition. The Countdown to ICD-10 Online Conference will be held on January 22, 2014. Educational sessions will take place from 11:00am - 6:00pm ET, and the exhibit hall will be open from 12:00pm - 5:00pm ET. Attendees can enjoy five exclusive ICD-10 webinars during the event and get critical insight from leading experts on the topic.

ICD-10 is scheduled to replace ICD-9 on October 1, 2014. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, there will be no delays or grace periods to the implementation of ICD-10.

Anyone qualified to code ICD-9 should be able to make the transition without much difficulty. However, because ICD-10 is a more specific coding classification list, there are major differences between the amount of codes and the way the system will affect information technology and software. This raises a number of pressing questions and concerns.

ADVANCE has already helped thousands of professionals understand how ICD-10 will impact the healthcare landscape through a variety of articles, webinars and other educational resources. Yet this is the first time ADVANCE is devoting a full day to ICD-10 guidance, instruction and strategic tips from the experts. Session topics will include physician engagement, converting to ICD-10 on a modest budget, creating an action plan for documentation assessments, what happens after October 1, 2014, and more.

In addition to providing top-notch ICD-10 learning opportunities, this informative event will enable healthcare executives and professionals to network with exhibitors that offer ICD-10 training assistance and implementation tools. Attendees can also chat with recruiters looking to hire qualified job seekers who have already trained for ICD-10.
