BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DST Health Solutions announced today that their PowerSTEPP, PowerMHC, PowerMHS and AMISYS Advance core administration platforms have been designed to support ICD-10 compliance, including both ICD-9 and ICD-10 processing. Coupled with DST's ICD-10 compliant integrated care management suite, DST Health Solutions offers one of the most comprehensive suites of clinical and administrative solutions in the industry. DST's integrated care management suite is core platform agnostic and designed to integrate with any claims administrative system.

"Our team has really gone the extra mile to ensure that our systems support ICD-10 compliance and remain flexible," said Steve Sabino, President of DST Health Solutions. "Our system configuration allows clients to effectively manage their operations based on their business needs and market demands, rather than on the limitations of their claims processing systems."

Advantages to our clients include:

  • The ability to mitigate ICD-10 challenges by carefully maintaining all customers' current configuration edits, providing a faster, lower risk ICD-10 compliance path.
  • The availability of standardized claims and benefits edits to support both ICD-9 and ICD-10 code sets.
  • The flexibility to support emerging clinical and financial reimbursement models anticipated with the application of ICD-10 by the introduction of date parameter driven ICD-9 and ICD-10 code sets.

The long-term benefits of ICD-10 are drawn from the level of granularity ICD-10 coding affords our industry, making it possible for more accurate processing and payment for claims.  In addition, the granularity is intended to lead to better clinical member outcomes and improved stakeholder relationships.
