Let’s face it, transitions are nerve racking, whether they are in life or in business. Many healthcare officials believe the 2,700 page Affordable Care Act (ACA), with its 12,000 pages of regulations, is leading to even more uncertainty. Just how will the transition to the ACA work, and how will appointed and career federal officials determine the law’s final requirements? All of this uncertainty raises real concerns about how the new law will impact the most crucial element in any healthcare reform effort: physicians.

That’s why doctors are nervous about the new law and how it will affect their incomes, their healthcare revenue cycle management, access to technologies and their professional autonomy. According to a survey by the Doctors Company, “60 percent of physicians are concerned that the new law will negatively impact patient care. Only 22 percent are optimistic about the law’s impact on patient care. 51 percent feel that the law will negatively impact their relationships with patients. These statistics raise questions about how and whether doctors will participate in the new system.”

Then there’s the transition to ICD-10 by Oct. 1, 2014, which means significant changes to both physician medical billing and office procedures, which are expected to affect every aspect of business operations. It also requires physicians to increase the level of medical record documentation across all aspects of service.

Is there such a thing as a seamless transition these days?
