ICD Changes That Will Affect Some Medical Billing

In an effort to improve medical billing and patient health, it is now a requirement to enroll in the new ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) data repository. On October 27, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced they would be moving over to a new data system. The purpose of this transition is to improve cardiovascular knowledge. Increased cardiovascular knowledge will lower bills and improve medical billing.

The New ICD data repository for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will be a change for the better. With all medical billing information transitioning from the old system, Quality Network Exchange ICD Abstract Tool, it will be easier to answer clinical questions. The ultimate goal of the new system is to lower the percentage of cardiac deaths in Americans. This would improve the overall health of the country and save much needed medical billing time and money.

The basic idea of the new implantable cardioverter defibrillator data repository system is to have over 1,300 hospitals all over the country deposit critical implantable cardioverter defibrillator data into one location. This would assist physicians and analysts in seeing patterns that could prevent cardiovascular disease. The system would also be available to the public so that patients could see the most appropriate method of ICD therapy to use in their particular situation. This system would keep medical billing upfront and honest.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has decided to take a proactive role in disease prevention. The introduction of the new implantable cardioverter defibrillator data repository is just one example of their new ideology. CMS wants medical billing to improve and to change. There may be a new medical billing system to learn, but this ICD system will be beneficial in the long run.
