The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange has launched a new program for states to collaborate on reaching compliance with the ICD-10 code sets.

The goal of the WEDI ICD-10 State Collaborative Initiative is to facilitate inter-state communication to share best practices, work together on end-to-end testing and other projects to reduce the time and costs of implementation. Initial state partners include California ICD-10 Collaborative, Massachusetts Health Data Consortium, Minnesota ICD-10 Collaborative, North Carolina Healthcare Information and Communications Alliance, and Wisconsin ICD-10 Collaborative. For information on joining, contact Leanne Cardwell, vice president of development and external relations at WEDI, at

Also announced is the first state collaborative meeting scheduled for July 22 during the WEDI ICD-10/HPID (Health Plan Identifier) Implementation Excellence Forum, July 22-25 in Fairfax, Va. More information is available here.
