Cerner, Epic Rate Highest in ICD-10 Preparedness, According to Providers

A new report called "ICD-10 Perception 2012: Can Technology Relieve Readiness Issues?" by KLAS, a healthcare research firm, reveals that providers rated electronic medical record vendors Cerner, Epic and Siemens highest in their ICD-10 preparedness, while Allscripts and MEDITECH were rated the lowest, according to a news release by KLAS.

The report discusses how leading providers are utilizing third-party consulting firms to help them overcome ICD-10 challenges. It also reveals that computer-assisted coding is among the technologies that providers are using for the ICD-10 transition. A majority of the market is looking to 3M for computer-assisted coding.

The report is the second of a two-part series. The first part of the series called "ICD-10 Consulting: Roadmap to a Successful Transition," was released Dec. 3, 2012. The report found that 84 percent of providers had engaged a consulting firm for ICD-10 roadmap/gap analysis.
