Adopting ICD-10

The transition will be monumental

Digital Edition, September 26, 2013

It’s often said that there’s no better motivation than a deadline. Yet healthcare organizations don’t seem like they are on track to transition from International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) to the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM), despite the fact that the federal government’s October 1, 2014 deadline looms in the not-so-distant future. To meet the ICD-10 transition deadline, healthcare organizations need to start preparing sooner, rather than later. Additionally, providers need to address a variety of issues such as staff education and training; business process analysis of health plan contracts, coverage determination and documentation.  Read this supplement to find out why providers aren't ready and what they need to do to be ready.
