Each year, health plans must update multiple systems with the newly released ICD-10 codes by the October 1 deadline.

While the ICD-10-CM updates for 2022 were smaller than last year with 191 new billable codes, and 25 invalidated ICD-10-CM codes, we still understand how big of an undertaking it is to update ICD-10 codes across the healthcare ecosystem!

For many healthcare organizations, annual code set updates are a manual, time-consuming process involving several teams and many, many spreadsheets.

A reference data management solution for your healthcare terminology can help:

  • Automate work that typically takes weeks to less than a day
  • Ensure accuracy with a single source of truth
  • Simplify data governance across the organization

Whether this year's updates were smooth sailing or a complete mess up until the last day, we can help improve the process for next year. 

90% reduction in time for code set updates

A large, southern health plan needed help updating ICD-10 codes that feed their claims payment systems. In fact, the ICD-10 code updates released were too much for them to process, so they found themselves unable to pay claims come October 1.

After implementing Health Language solutions, they found a 90% reduction in time to process updates, cutting the code processing time from 6-8 weeks to just a few hours!
