ICD-10: What should a delay mean for you?
Last week HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that HHS will begin a process to delay the Oct. 1, 2013, deadline for complying with ICD-10 standards. Sebelius did not say when the new deadline would be.
At HIMSS, we’re hearing that even a short delay could dramatically affect ICD-10 transition projects already underway, with the risk of project funding being pulled or redirected.
It’s our position that a delay would mean that healthcare organizations have the chance to do the transition right. Rather than simply deploying crosswalks, concentrating on coding without the context of how it will affect the relationships with trading partners, what healthcare organizations need to do is to establish a framework for managing this change from beginning to end.
By fully documenting the process from the perspective of all stakeholders (including both manual and automated processes), collaborating with trading partners to encourage dialogue around the impacts of the change, and enabling a round-trip testing environment where partners can see the impact of the changes data that is truly representative of production, the result will not only be a successful ICD-10 transition, but also the development of a process model for handling other forms of disruptive change in the future.

It’s the last day of the show and it’s been really hectic… in a good way, of course. We’ve had a lot of commotion around the TIBCO booth, riddled with electrifying conversation. While eavesdropping on Ted, I latch on to a thought-provoking question. “How do we solve the cost vs. quality problem? Constrained timelines are forcing us to choose.”
Good question: With speed, cost and quality as the three sides of the change triangle, and with the government-set timeline, do healthcare providers have to sacrifice cost or quality?
Ted’s answer was simple: “Cost isn’t necessarily money… it can be usability of what gets developed. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel, we simply have to deliver solutions contextually in real time; otherwise they’re not actionable.”

Suits vs. Spandex: Up for the Challenge?
Can you beat an elite cyclist? TIBCO is challenging you to pick up the pace at this year’s HIMSS show.
When it comes to a challenge, TIBCO isn’t afraid of anything. Neither is Team TIBCO, the nation’s #1 women’s cycling team. Always a popular event, The TIBCO Challenge entices competitive spirits to hop on a stationary bike and beat the time set for a particular distance by one of the women cyclists (who will give you a two-second advantage™). As you ride, an integrated suite of TIBCO solutions works together to capture, analyze and deliver a real-time scoreboard, spitting out the graphically ranked results of everyone who’s participated. Combatants with the best time of the day can win a team jersey or the bike itself.
Founded by Olympian Linda Jackson with the goal of helping aspiring female athletes make it to the top, the ladies of Team TIBCO have proven time and time again that they are fearless, evident by their incessantly growing portfolio of high-profile awards and recognitions. Jackson inspires her girls to stay at the top of their game through healthy lifestyles, perseverance and plain ol’ smarts.

“Information is not knowledge.” These words were first uttered by Albert Einstein. Today, they fell on the ears of thousands of HIMSS12 attendees during Twitter co-founder Biz Stone’s keynote speech in Las Vegas.
In today’s world of big data, Einstein – and Stone – couldn’t be more right. The information isn’t enough… we need understanding to go along with it.
“That is exactly what TIBCO does,” says Ted DellaVecchia, TIBCO healthcare strategist and industry thought leader. “We call it the two-second advantage™ – allowing people to take the noise out of data and put it in context.”
TIBCO’s Event Driven Healthcare responds to real-time demands by employing the two-second advantage to improve patient outcomes, reduce the cost of care and administrative costs, facilitate collaboration, and ensure compliance.
Einstein would surely have to agree that our unique ability to see, understand, and automatically respond to real-time events is as smart as you can get.
