BCC Financial Management Services Inc. Comments on ICD-10 Implementation and Revenue Cycle Management Topics Discussed at the Recent (AAHAM) American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management New Orleans Convention
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- October 29, 2013 -- BCC Financial Management Services Inc., attended the recent AAHAM-ANI conference held at the New Orleans Sheraton Hotel. In attendance were healthcare professionals from many regions of the country. BCC Financial Management Services President Emil "Skip" Speranza and Sammy Aboud, Senior Vice President of Marketing attended the convention.
"The general consensus was concern over new governmental regulations and the implementation of ICD-10 next year," said Emil "Skip" Speranza, President of BCC Management Services. He also added, "Many of the senior management we had discussions with were feeling the pressure of the pending ICD-10 implementation, as well as constantly seeking new approaches to improve revenue cycle management results."
Sammy Aboud, Senior Vice President of Marketing added, "Our conversations with CFOs, Revenue Cycle Managers and many PFS Directors had a common goal in finding the Holy Grail of Solutions for the challenges and obstacles they face in reaching excellence in patient financial services and revenue cycle management." Sammy continued, "In the hospital information management ('HIM') arena we have implemented solutions for our clients by having them outsource some of the coding areas, such as ER and ancillaries while they train their staff and upgrade to the new ICD-10 protocols. Our outsourcing service that we provide curtails significant disruptions in their current billing and revenue cycle functions. We only just began addressing the need that many facilities have in simply digitalizing their charts, let alone the training needed for ICD-10."
