Reed Group Simplifies the Complexity of ICD-10-CM Transition

WESTMINSTER, Colo.--()--Reed Group, a leader in absence management administration, announced today that all of its offerings now include the ICD-10-CM code set and one of its key products, MDGuidelines®, now contains a general equivalency mapping tool that allows users to input ICD-9-CM or ICD-10-CM codes and find equivalent matches. For more information go to www.mdguidelines.com.

“Our goal was to take the data complexities of transitioning from ICD-9 to ICD-10-CM and provide clients with a simple solution to effectively manage the massive integration needs across their businesses, and to meet the requirement to comply with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services implementation date of October 1, 2015,” said David Roberts, Reed Group’s CEO.

Reed Group considered the full scope of ICD-10-CM data touchpoints as well as those areas where client business practices might be impacted by transition issues, and offered a simple solution for each. With 30 years of industry experience to call upon, Reed Group teams were able to translate the volume and intricacy of information into simple solutions at the point of data integration, across their software platform, and within web services, business intelligence, and predictive analytics.

“As companies begin to think through how to effectively navigate the ICD-10-CM code set,” Roberts continued, “our MDGuidelines product can play a vital role in this transition. The MDGuidelines general equivalency mapping tool is a powerful solution for users who need to work across both code sets.” For companies who will still be using ICD-9, Reed Group will provide full access to ICD-9 codes through October 2019 to ensure full support.

The integration of the ICD-10-CM codes set includes Reed Group’s LeavePro® SaaS software, their outsourced absence management services, the MDGuidelines® duration, treatment and pharmaceutical tools, and Reed Group’s business intelligence services.
