wolters kluwer (WKL) Key Developments

Wolters Kluwer Announces ICD-10 Services from Health Language to Speed Preparations, Readiness for October 2015 Deadline

Wolters Kluwer announced that its ICD-10 Readiness Package is available to payers and providers to meet the fast approaching October 2015 deadline. Offered through its Health Language family of products, the Readiness Package is designed to mitigate financial risk, remediate clinical and IT systems, and ensure systems are performing optimally post go-live across the customer’s enterprise. The ICD-10 Readiness Package addresses three key areas critical to ensuring a successful transition: Mitigate Financial Risk: Driven by the Health Language claims analytics methodology, the readiness solution simulates ICD-10 claims to identify priority areas for clinical documentation improvement strategies, dual coding, and chart review activities prior to the transition. Remediation of Clinical and IT Systems: List mapping and testing services are targeted to establish a pragmatic approach for remediating systems that currently rely on ICD-9 codes including pick lists, superbills, decision support systems, quality measures, medical policies, and claims adjudication systems. Post Go-Live Checkup: An ICD-10 financial analysis check-up conducted after October 2015 ensures that remediation plans are working as planned. By analyzing newly created ICD-10 claims, organizations can assess the effectiveness of their clinical documentation improvement programs, remediation of their longitudinal reports and analytics, as well as highlighting any outstanding financial risks as a result of the new coding system. The pending ICD-10 transition deadline presents a significant challenge for healthcare organizations. With less than five months left to execute transition strategies, organizations will need to take the necessary steps to protect the integrity of their revenue cycle. Providers will need to ensure clinicians are capturing the required specificity, while maintaining coder productivity and accuracy. Payers will need to minimize over-payments and denials by ensuring their claims processing systems are properly remediated to accept the new coding system beginning October 2015.

Wolters Kluwer Releases Quality Alignment Manager

Wolters Kluwer announced the release of Quality Alignment Manager, a comprehensive resource that assists healthcare organizations with compliance and adherence to evolving regulatory guidelines for performance. An enhancement to ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, the new feature will order sets that are not aligned with quality measures and trigger alerts regarding needed edits or additions. Quality Alignment Manager offers a library of regulatory quality measures, including more than 50 National Hospital Inpatient Quality Measures. Through an automated gap analysis and a set of customizable rules, the solution addresses the challenge that healthcare organizations face in keeping order sets up-to-date as national quality initiatives continue to expand and evolve. The system alerts healthcare organizations when order set content critical to quality measures is omitted or when content deviates from regulatory standards.

Journal of Physician Assistant Education Selects Wolters Kluwer as its New Publisher

Wolters Kluwer announced an agreement with the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA) to publish its official title, the Journal of Physician Assistant Education (JPAE), effective with the March 2015 issue. Published quarterly, JPAE is an important forum for those involved in the education and training of physician assistants, whose numbers have grown dramatically in recent years. This peer-reviewed journal offers educators a resource for sharing ideas and innovations for advancing the training of the next generation of physician assistants. Beginning with the March 2015 issue of the Journal of Physician Assistant Education, authors and reviewers will have an enhanced and streamlined electronic manuscript submission.
