ICD-10 External and Revenue Impact Testing

QualiTest provides end-to-end testing of systems/applications and their interoperability across the healthcare spectrum including providers, payers, clearinghouses, and third party vendors and administrators.
Because the Golden dataset contains 5010 claims (837) in both ICD-9 and ICD-10, revenue impact testing can be started immediately as soon as payer systems are ready. Revenue impact testing can be done concurrently throughout the testing cycle without any disruption to internal testing.
ICD-9 and ICD-10 5010 claim reimbursements/remittance advices (835) would be compared and resolved for unexpected variances.

ICD-10 CDI Coder Readiness Testing

The Golden Data Set can be used as a reference for coder training and internal coder readiness testing, as well as to identify necessary CDI changes in charting to determine gaps for coding in ICD-10. Self-generated test data cannot measure coding accuracy or documentation quality, as any errors present will continue to be made; thus, independence is the key to cost-effective CDI and Coder Readiness Testing. Use of our Golden Data Set is estimated to provide an added value of $100,000 to organizations’ CDI efforts.

Healthcare Regulations Testing

As a Healthcare professional, you know there are already a lot of irons in the regulatory fire: ICD-10, HIPAA, 5010, ARRA/HITECH, Meaningful Use, PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act). All of these initiatives are coming into force in the next few years, if they haven’t already. As daunting as it may seem, now is the time to strike.

Golden Data Test Set

The most efficient way to accomplish ICD-10 testing is by using automated accelerators and Golden Data, a set of dual-coded medical records (both ICD-9 and ICD-10). The Golden Data is peer-reviewed and validated by clinical/coding experts. The purpose of the automated accelerators is to improve the speed and accuracy of data entry without the need of human input, resulting in faster and more efficient testing which is reflected in higher quality and greater monetary savings. There is no need for GEMs or cross-walks when your company uses Golden Data.

Meaningful Use

Internalizing the standards of Meaningful Use will eventually lead to positive ROI through simple cost reduction. To qualify for incentives, hospitals or independent providers must prove that they have been using an ONC-Certified EHR system in a meaningful way for a minimum period of time. QualiTest’s services can prove to be a large help in this hurdle. Our services include:

  • Impact Assessment & Gap Analysis
  • Workflow and Business Rules Assessment
  • Internal Readiness Testing
  • Third-Party Integration and Migration Testing
  • Software Compliance Testing and Reporting
  • Stage 1, 2, and 3 Compliance Reporting
  • Security Assessment & Remediation Plans

Automated Regression Testing

For the most accurate and efficient ICD-10 testing, QualiTest recommends that organizations automate their repetitive ICD-10 testing scenarios by using test accelerators. Automated testing lowers costs while increasing speed and efficiency by minimizing human error; because the tests are mostly run by the computer by following the rules set by testers, there is a smaller margin of error and a faster rate of completion. Systems and applications that go through automated regression testing will be available for use sooner than those which are tested manually, which allows businesses to resume serving their customers sooner.

QualiTest was engaged by the Florida Hospital Quality Assurance department to assist in creating a test automation solution for a new registration system we are implementing. QualiTest assisted by developing an automation framework to script, execute, provide source control and integration with our Quality Assurance tracking tools. I found them to be highly qualified, flexible and provided great value. I would recommend them to anyone looking for assistance in test automation.
