ICD10 Implementation

The International Classification Diseases (ICD) is a coding system used to specify diagnosis and related procedures when billing for related medical services. The US Federal government, through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), has mandated the use of ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes and ICD-10-PCS for inpatient procedure coding throughout the healthcare system effective October 2015.

Adult Day Services

Adult Day Services offer community-based non-residential supports to assist adults with physical and/or cognitive impairments to remain as active in their communities as possible. Adult day centers provide a safe, supportive environment where people can come during the day and receive a range of professional health, social and therapeutic services, as well as a nutritious meal and valuable social interaction. Adult day services also provide respite, support and education to family members and caregivers.
