Kforce Healthcare, Inc. And Elsevier/MC Strategies Enhance ICD-10 Services

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kforce Healthcare, Inc., a staffing and solutions provider for Health Information Management (HIM) services, has expanded its offerings through a collaboration with Elsevier's MC Strategies to provide ICD-10 education, training assessments and project management services. In early 2012, Kforce Healthcare and Elsevier began offering training to more than 700 Kforce HIM consultants. Leveraging Elsevier's unique eLearning platform, Kforce Healthcare has continued to deliver tailored training plans for these consultants through a phased approach.

Extending their collaborative services, Kforce Healthcare and Elsevier are now working together to provide organizational readiness, including coder and documentation assessments, as well as training and education for all areas affected by the ICD-10 transition.

"Now that the Department of Health and Human Services has finalized the October 1, 2014 date for ICD-10 implementation, all healthcare facilities need to evaluate their ICD-10 readiness and develop vendor relationships to help ensure there is no delay in securing experienced resources," said Amy Simpson, Group Vice President, Kforce Healthcare, Inc. "The demand for talent in areas including technology, as well as coding and analysis, is projected to quickly escalate. Talent and time are running out for facilities that delay on preparations for the ICD-10 deadline."

From before the go-live date and beyond, Kforce Healthcare offers specialized assistance for all stages of ICD-10 implementation including: assessments, project management, remote and onsite education and post-implementation activities. Kforce Healthcare also regularly provides compliance reviews, clinical documentation improvement services and staffing support services to assist clients in achieving a successful transition to ICD-10 and on-going compliance efforts even after the October 2014 implementation deadline.

"By collaborating with Kforce, we are able to bring our eLearning resources to Kforce consultants and to provide healthcare organizations with the preparation they need to meet the challenges of the coming ICD-10 implementation deadline," said John Schrefer, President of Elsevier's MC Strategies. "Only through education and training will we be able to help make this transition go smoothly for our clients."
