Data Project Plan
Assignment Topic: Data Project Plan
Part A (Class Discussion)
This case study is practice for the unit Assignment. Work through and discuss this as a group.
As an HIM Data Quality Analyst, you know that information interoperability enables the movement of electronic health information to where and when it is needed to support individual healthcare needs and population-oriented uses. Select and describe one population-oriented use such as disaster management, bioterrorism surveillance, and community healthcare tracking that would be useful for a large, county hospital system.

Part B Topic: Data Project Plan
As an HIM Data Quality Analyst, you know that information interoperability enables the
movement of electronic health information to where and when it is needed to support
individual healthcare needs and population-oriented uses. Select a population-oriented
use such as disaster management, bioterrorism surveillance, and community healthcare
tracking that would be useful for a large, county hospital system and create a data
project plan that justifies data integrity as a key strategic resource and mission tool.
Create a data project plan for a large, county hospital system. In your data project plan,
justify data integrity as a key strategic resource and mission tool in a 4 page (excluding cover and reference page) document.
You can accomplish this by: (1) Selecting a population-oriented use for
electronic data (examples: disaster management, bioterrorism surveillance, community
healthcare tracking); (2) Advocating how information interoperability and information
exchange can be efficiently achieved; and (3) Demonstrating how data stewardship can
be accomplished using secondary databases and population databases.

Health information management (HIM) professionals play a significant role in transitioning from ICD-9- CM to ICD-10-CM/PCS. ICD-10-CM/PCS coding will impact many operational aspects of healthcare facilities, such as physicians’ documentation in health records, coders’ process for review of clinical information, the billing process, and the payers’ reimbursement to the healthcare facilities. This article examines the level of readiness and planning for ICD-10-CM/PCS implementation among hospitals in Alabama, identifies training methods/approaches to be used by the hospitals, and discusses the challenges to the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding transition. A 16-question survey was distributed to 116 Alabama hospital HIM directors in December 2011 with follow-up through February 2012. Fifty-three percent of respondent hospitals began the planning process in 2011, and most facilities were halfway or less than halfway to completion of specific implementation tasks. Hospital coders will be or are being trained using in-house training, through seminars/webinars, or by consultants. The impact of ICD-10- CM/PCS implementation can be minimized by training coders in advance, hiring new coders, and adjusting coders’ productivity measures. Three major challenges to the transition were identified: the need to interact with physicians and other providers more often to obtain information needed to code in ICD-10-CM/PCS systems, education and training of coders and other ICD-10-CM/PCS users, and dependence on vendors for major technology upgrades for ICD-10-CM/PCS systems. Survey results provide beneficial information for HIM professionals and other users of coded data to assist in establishing sound practice standards for ICD-10-CM/PCS coding implementation. Adequate planning and preparation will be essential to the successful implementation of ICD-10-CM/PCS.

Introduced in the United States in 1979, the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) established a coding system to document inpatient diagnostic and procedural codes.1 However, ICD-9-CM is now over 30 years old. The new age of technology has brought numerous improvements in medical procedures and applications impacting the effectiveness of this coding system.2-4The federally mandated transition to the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification, and the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-CM/PCS) brings an expansion of the existing ICD-9-CM code set, adding 54,000 diagnosis codes and 83,000 procedure codes .5-6 Implementation of the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding systems’ increased granularity will bring challenges to providers and healthcare organizations throughout the healthcare delivery system, particularly as healthcare entities attempt to comply with mandates for health information exchange (HIE).7-13
As many healthcare providers and organizations continued to plan for the transition to ICD-10- CM/PCS,14-15 the Department of Health and Human Services considered the possibility of yet another extension to a new compliance date of October 1, 2014.117 On September 5, 2012, a final rule was published in the Federal Register announcing the delay of ICD-10-CM/PCS to October 1, 2014.1″ Some healthcare organizations ready for the transition may feel the extra time is unwarranted; however, for those providers who delayed ICD-10-CM/PCS implementation because of challenges associated with planning,20-24 costs of implementation,25-26 and training,27-31 the extension offers time to successfully complete the implementation process.32
According to data from a 2012 collaborative study by the Georgetown University Student Consulting Team and Booz Allen Hamilton, “training was regarded as the most significant and costly component of the transition.”33 This transition impacts the delivery of care within the overall healthcare system; therefore, the incorporation of appropriate roles and job functions into training programs is critical to the success of an implementation plan 34 Moreover, understanding an organization’s level of readiness for implementation provides a foundation for the development of a successful ICD-10-CM/PCS transition plan.
