WAYNE, Pa., and ALPHARETTA, Ga., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Through its partnership with HealthStream (NASDAQ: HSTM), Precyse University, the most innovative, complete and widely adopted on-site, online and mobile ICD-10 education solution, has launched a powerful and unique ICD-10 education program for the physician office/ambulatory market. Revolutionary benefits and features include:
- A single solution for all ICD-10 education needed within a practice or clinic;
- Diversified education providing each impacted population with the specific tools and training needed to be successful in ICD-10;
- Myriad advanced courseware, applications and tools to make education more practical, accessible and relevant to physicians' concerns, needs and time constraints; and
- Exclusive access to Precyse University's expansive, one-of-a-kind ICD-10 education program.
"The transition to ICD-10 poses challenges to physicians, yet it also promises particular benefits," explains Precyse President Chris Powell. "These benefits can only be achieved if physicians take the time to find the right educational solution to properly prepare themselves and their staffs."
Precyse and HealthStream have partnered to offer a one-stop solution for all the ICD-10 education needed within physician practices, clinics and other ambulatory settings. With Precyse's innovative ICD-10 education programs and HealthStream's market-leading platform for talent management (i.e., the platform and technology that provides Precyse University), healthcare providers have made the ICD-10 solution from Precyse and HealthStream the healthcare industry's top choice.
ICD-10 will affect every aspect of a physician's practice, including patient encounters, clinical and financial workflow and, depending on the circumstances, compensation and reimbursement. Physicians who take decisive steps to fully integrate ICD-10 codes into their clinical practice stand to benefit in several ways, including determining severity of illness and proving medical necessity, growing compensation and reimbursement and addressing technology and healthcare reform initiatives—such as value-based purchasing, pay-for-performance programs and the government's physician quality reporting system (PQRS).
"The Precyse University ICD-10 Physician Office Solution is built to fully prepare physicians and all members of their offices and/or clinics for the new world of ICD-10," explains Thomas Ormondroyd, Vice President and General Manager of Precyse Learning Solutions. "Although ICD-10 seems daunting and burdensome, it actually offers tremendous opportunity to optimize reimbursement, minimize denials and appeals and improve clinical care through more valuable and detailed data. Our solution is designed to ease the change to ICD-10 and have physicians and their staffs ready for its arrival."
Unlike its competitors, the Precyse University solution is fully built and tested with more than 200 courses, applications and tools specifically for physicians' needs. In addition, all courses are mobile-ready for use on a computer, iPad® or mobile device to make education available anywhere and at any time. Innovative tools and resources such as video games, labs, simulators and animations are available as well.
"Through this partnership, Precyse and HealthStream have become the leading provider of ICD-10 education in the country, reaching thousands of healthcare organizations nationwide," said Powell. "We are the #1 choice by top hospitals in the United States, as our ICD-10 education solution is being used in 14 of the 18 healthcare facilities listed in U.S. News and World Report's Best Hospitals Honor Roll, which recognizes facilities that achieved high scores in six or more specialties. We are proud to be associated with these top-notch Honor Roll facilities and look forward to now serving the physician office community."
