Deadline: October 1, 2014 in 30 Weeks
ICD10 - Do you have a plan?
Everyone hoped that the ICD10 deadline of October 1, 2014 would be delayed, again. Despite the push by so many, including the AMA, it doesn't look like a delay is likely. Why? Because the industry as a whole has spent into the billions of dollars preparing for this mandate. As one of the last developed nations to adopt ICD10, the United States will be lucky to any delay whatsoever.
That means, you better have a plan for your practice.
Question: Who is affected by ICD10? Answer: Almost everyone in your practice.
The good news is that there are plenty of resources to help you begin preparing no matter where you are in the process. CMS has released "Road to 10," an online resource built with the help of providers in small practices. This tool is intended to help small medical practices jumpstart their ICD-10 transition. "Road to 10," includes specialty references and gives providers the capability to build ICD-10 action plans tailored for their practice needs.
