ICD10 Update

A collective sigh of relief could be heard around the healthcare industry when Congress recently voted to extend the deadline for the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 from Oct. 1, 2014, to Oct. 1, 2015. However, leaders will be making a big mistake if they collectively decide to put their feet up and relax for any extended period of time. We all know how quickly these deadlines can creep up on us – as this most recent delay represents the third time that the transition to ICD-10 (a coding system that has been widely adopted by other countries) has been put off.
