Almost five years ago I began working on a large ICD-10 remediation project. I had extra time in the evenings so I started a blog to share information, experiences and insight gleaned from the project I was working on. I titled the blog: “ICD-10 Impact to Healthcare Payers and Providers”
My very first post was a request for topics to write about. I got one response from some smart arse who asked: “Why should I read posts from someone I’ve never heard of and who has never blogged before?”
What Blogging Taught Me
Well, maybe whoever sent that request was correct – at the time at least. After the first year of blogging I wrote a post “5 Things I Learned in My First Year of Blogging.” What I learned about blogging was that I had to stick with it, that it’s actually way easier than I thought – if I do it in small bits and pieces and use available tools. I also realized that I blog to help me focus myself; blogging is a means of relaxing and clarifying my thoughts.
Time for a Change
So as I asked almost five years ago when I started this blog:
· What is your current biggest challenge?
· What is your greatest risk?
· What are the key questions you as a provider have for a payer? and vice-versa?
· What specific areas of the assessment or remediation process would you like more information about?
I will do my best to respond to all requests.
