Benchmark Systems has announced that on Nov. 1, it will release software named Benchmark Code Assistant to assist medical practices in transitioning to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision.

In medicine, the ICD sets the diagnostic codes doctors enter in order to identify and justify medical procedures or prescriptions. ICD-10 will replace the current version used in the U.S. (ICD-9) on Oct. 1, 2015. The new codes, which have seven places instead of the five used by ICD-9, will allow for greater specificity. The transition is expected to be difficult as the 13,000 codes utilized today for ICD-9, will expand to 68,000 codes for ICD-10.

Benchmark Systems Vice President, Ernie Chastain, said the software will help physicians find and record the new codes quickly to ensure there are no reimbursement delays due to coding.

“Most doctors have been attending training sessions on the new code standards for over a year.” Chastain said. “I believe most understand the conceptual difference and the fact that if they are not specific with coding they won’t get paid; insurance companies will reject generic codes. Benchmark’s Code Assistant puts 68,000 diagnostic codes at their fingertips with a very easy to use search function.”

Benchmark Code Assistant will be usable both on the iPhone and on computers. The module will allow a quick search of the SNOMED diagnostic code database and immediately download the chosen codes directly into Benchmark System’s Practice Management System.

“ICD-10 readiness requires training and a comprehensive easy to use set of tools” said Chastain. “Benchmark Code Assistant will help make the transition seamless.”
