Recently I served as a panelist for Talk Ten Tuesdays, ICD10monitor’s weekly Internet program. The program covers a variety of topics, but ICD-10 is its primary focus.  

The experience got me to thinking: we are already seeing, ICD-10 can provide us some rich data, and this directly ties to coding quality. When we are considering coding quality, we need to think beyond DRGs and APCs and recognize that coded data impacts every organization in a variety of ways, with one being reimbursement.
