NORWALK, Conn., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pulse Systems, Inc., an industry-leading provider of Electronic Health Record (EHR), Practice Management and Revenue Cycle Management solutions, will participate in UBM Medica's first Practice Rx conference from May 2-3, 2014 in Newport Beach, CA.
In a session titled, "ICD-10: Demystifying and Preparing for the Transition," Sonya Bess, a Government Initiative Specialist with Pulse Systems, will share insights about the impact of ICD-10 and offer useful tips and advice on how best to prepare practices to save time and money.
Pulse was the first health information technology company in the industry to link the importance of receiving the 2014 EHR Certification to ICD-10. Pulse's Practice Management Solution, PulsePro, and Pulse's Complete EHR, will serve as the solution platform to help physician practices document and attest for Meaningful Use Stage 1 and 2, while migrating from ICD-9 to ICD-10. Pulse is also the first electronic healthcare management solutions company in the nation to show what ICD-10 actually looks like in EHR and practice management software.
"As everyone knows, the ICD-10 implementation date has been delayed from October 1, 2014 to October 1, 2015, at the earliest," said Samuel S. Ambrose, Chief Marketing Officer of Pulse. "Pulse encourages all physician practices to use this extended time wisely and continue to get your practices prepared. The content being offered in this session will provide those in attendance with useful tips and information about ICD-10 readiness, so they can make a successful transition to ICD-10, regardless of the implementation start date."
Ambrose continued, "We're happy to be partnering with UBM Medica and Practice Rx to bring this vital information to the physicians and office administrators who need it most."
Taking place at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, Practice Rx is designed to arm physicians and office administrators with proven strategies to streamline their practice and improve their bottom line. For more details about the conference, please visit www.practice-rx.com.
