September 29, 2015 — Scriptor Software, a provider of software that helps physicians create high-quality medical reports, announced that its radiology reporting software rScriptor is now ICD-10 compliant. It works with virtually any voice recognition system to help radiology groups and imaging services lines meet a six-fold increase in the number of codes used to drive reimbursement that is projected to have enormous financial and operational implications.

ICD-10, which goes into effect on Oct. 1, 2015, requires the use of new specific terminology regarding abnormal findings in radiology reports. In order to meet new billing, documentation and compliance requirements, radiologists must include more detailed descriptions of the abnormal findings in final reports.

“The implementation of ICD-10 does not change how providers practice medicine, but rather it demands more detailed documentation to capture new data to ensure they are reimbursed for the work they perform,” said John Stewart, M.D., Ph.D., Scriptor Software’s CEO and a practicing radiologist. According to Stewart, rScriptor can determine if the level of detail required is present in the report, and warn the radiologist if additional information is required prior to signing it.

rScriptor also checks reports for errors or omissions and includes required information for Medicare, Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and third-party payer billing requirements. This allows radiologists to focus their attention on the findings for each report rather than on the ever-growing reporting requirements.
