Medisoft v20 ICD-10 Functionality
The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 will impact your practice’s workflow, and Medisoft can help you manage the changes. This release has many features designed to help both reduce manual entry and minimize the complexity of ICD-9 to ICD-10 mapping.
Dual diagnosis list
Medisoft v20 makes it easy to search for ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes using the code itself or a full or partial description. Where applicable, the display shows how ICD-10 corresponds to ICD-9.
Customized carrier settings
The new codes go into effect on October 1, 2015, but a select few carriers might not transition on day one. Medisoft v20 allows you to specify whether the carrier is using ICD-9 or ICD-10 and warns you if the wrong code is entered. This helps to both save time and reduce coding errors. It’s also easy to set the new code when you add new carriers.
Medisoft v20 features a mapping tool based on CMS’s General Equivalent Mappings (GEM) that can help you translate some ICD-9 codes to ICD-10. Enter an ICD-9 code and Medisoft v20 will provide a mapping to the appropriate ICD-10 code(s), where applicable. This helps you compare and translate data during the ICD-10 transition process.
New CMS 1500 02-12 form
Beginning April 1, 2014, all physician practices and billers must use the new CMS 1500 Claim Form (02/12) which accommodates ICD-10 codes. Medisoft v19 supports use of this form, helping ensure accurate claims processing.
When you purchase Medisoft v20, you can also take advantage of Medisoft Mobile, a no-fee application for the iPad® and iPhone®. This ICD-10 ready app allows you to use your phone or tablet to view your schedule and to transmit charges. Using the combined offerings, Medisoft v20 and Medisoft Mobile solutions can help you track and submit claims to your biller all at the tap of a button.
