ICD-10 education and resources for Oregon providers

ICD-10 training update for providers
As a result of the new Oct. 1, 2015, compliance date for ICD-10, providers may choose to take their training now or wait until next spring. Providence Medical Group providers have an incentive to complete their ICD-10 training by the end of this year since it accounts for a portion of the primary care providers' citizenship bonus. To prepare for ICD-10, dual coding and clinical documentation reviews are in progress and will continue through at least Oct. 1, 2014. Providers are encouraged to take their training sooner rather than later to help these coders and clinical documentation specialists.

Here are some of the ways the ICD-10 project will be supporting providers in the transition to ICD-10 coding:

  • Online education

      *Disclaimer: The Providence IS Help Desk will not be supporting these apps.
    **Note: Link only accessible within the Providence internal network

  • On-site education
  • Concurrent documentation review by Clinical Documentation Specialists
  • Information Services/Epic Support – details will be provided at a later date
