MGMA14: Navicure CEO Discusses Challenges Faced by Providers
The annual MGMA conference gives medical practices an opportunity to learn, collaborate and network with peers. Always Forward was the theme for this year’s conference held in Las Vegas this year. With that tagline in mind, we sat down and interviewed key executives from companies and organizations exhibiting at the conference. While many of our questions were framed around our wheelhouse of meaningful use, HIPAA security and interoperability, certainly the topics of revenue cycle management and next year’s ICD-10 deadline were front and center at the conference.
In addressing RCM and transitioning to ICD-10, we sat down with Jim Denny, CEO of Navicure. Navicure is a leading cloud-based claims clearinghouse and patient payment solutions company that serves more than 50,000 healthcare providers across the U.S.
On the interview, Jim talks about how forward-thinking medical practices are handling the rise in patient responsibility due to higher deductibles and co-pays. He also talks about the looming October 2015 deadline for transitioning to ICD-10. His key point? Despite a year’s delay, practices are no further along in preparing for the transition, and he advises practices not to procrastinate further.

Navicure posts regularly on ICD-10 on their two blogs, the daily practice and ICD-10 Hub. The company also offers their ICD-10 Analyzer, a free online tool that helps billers identify ICD-9 codes most likely to impact payer reimbursement and suggests the corresponding ICD-10 codes.
