TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 25, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kforce Healthcare Solutions, a division of Kforce Inc. (Nasdaq:KFRC), reveals the challenges and significant changes of ICD-10 implementations on small healthcare facilities' operational, technological and financial processes.

In a recent article from Advance, Kforce Healthcare Solutions explains how critical access hospitals can meet ICD-10 requirements within budget, without compromising the quality of patient care or the efficiency of reimbursement procedures.

"Talent and time are running out for ICD-10 implementation and it is important for small hospitals to gauge readiness early on with the help of an ICD-10 solutions provider who can offer high value, yet cost effective solutions," said Keith Fulmer, Executive Vice President of Kforce Healthcare Solutions. "Many small hospitals operate with limited resources and a solutions provider can help these facilities better understand the challenges of ICD-10 implementation while adapting to each facility's unique constraints, opportunities and vision."

Fulmer adds that an ICD-10 assessment is essential for a successful ICD-10 implementation and can help identify areas in need of improvement, such as operations, technology, education, revenue cycle and governance.
