We respectfully request your patience and understanding while Gila River Health Care implements the new ICD-10 on October 1, 2015.
WHAT IS ICD-10?
Beginning October 1, 2015, all hospitals nationwide are required to implement something new: It’s called “ICD-10”. It is the new International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision (ICD-10) diagnosis coding. It is mandated by Medicare and Medicaid. It affects how healthcare providers must document and code a patient’s electronic health record.
HOW WILL THIS AFFECT MY PATIENT CARE?
You may experience longer than expected wait times while providers become familiar with the new documentation requirements and diagnosis codes.
HOW LONG WILL THIS TRANSITION LAST?
We will make every effort to make this time period as brief as possible. We are talking weeks, not months.
Gila River Health Care is ready for ICD-10 and we have a plan to ensure our practices have a smooth transition. Thanks again for your understanding.
Should you have questions, please contact the Customer Service Department at: (602) 528-1453 or visit GRHC.OR/ICD-10.
