Revolutionary benefits and features include:

"The transition to ICD-10 poses challenges to physicians, yet it also promises particular benefits," explains Precyse President Chris Powell. "These benefits can only be achieved if physicians take the time to find the right educational solution to properly prepare themselves and their staffs."
Precyse and HealthStream have partnered to offer a one-stop solution for all the ICD-10 education needed within physician practices, clinics and other ambulatory settings. With Precyse's innovative ICD-10 education programs and HealthStream's market-leading platform for talent management (i.e., the platform and technology that provides Precyse University), healthcare providers have made the ICD-10 solution from Precyse and HealthStream the healthcare industry's top choice.ICD-10 will affect every aspect of a physician's practice, including patient encounters, clinical and financial workflow and, depending on the circumstances, compensation and reimbursement. Physicians who take decisive steps to fully integrate ICD-10 codes into their clinical practice stand to benefit in several ways, including determining severity of illness and proving medical necessity, growing compensation and reimbursement and addressing technology and healthcare reform initiatives—such as value-based purchasing, pay-for-performance programs and the government's physician quality reporting system (PQRS).
