Maybe the major payers are ready, but what about the providers offices ?
Anticipating the angst of October 1st, we've developed and recently released an app that may help alleviate the anxiety related to the ICD-10 implementation. Especially for the small practices that don't have the support or budgets of a hospital HIM department.

While it's comforting to know that the major insurers are ready, if I were a small practice I don't think I would wait for them to train me and my staff. By the time Spring rolls around it may already be too late to train staff, update software and integrate ICD-10-CM into your practice. Sunera Healthcare has already assisted several practices on their way to a smooth transition, call us!
