The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange since 2009 has conducted nine surveys to track progress toward ICD-10 compliance and is asking providers, insurers, vendors and clearinghouses to again participate.

The latest survey now is available here, with a March 6 deadline and results released by March 20. WEDI is an industry consortium and also serves as an advisor to the Department of Health and Human Services.

The organization will continue to conduct surveys throughout 2015, including two more before the October 1 compliance date as it assesses the degree to which stakeholders need additional education and outreach.

Results of an ICD-10 survey in August 2014 found many organizations were not taking advantage of the compliance delay imposed by Congress in the spring that moved the date back another year.

By last August, about half of responding providers had completed their impact assessment, which showed little progress from an October 2013 survey. About 35 percent of providers had started external testing, which showed no progress from October when 60 percent had expected to begin such tests by the middle of 2014.

In the August survey, vendors and health plans were considerably ahead with preparations than providers and had made significant progress since the October 2013 survey.
