ICD-10 Transition One Year Away
When 2014 rolled around, the healthcare industry was expecting the transition to the ICD-10 coding system to happen today. In March, Congress unexpectedly voted to delay that transition for at least one year, and HHS subsequently reset the transition date to October 1, 2015.
The transition to ICD-10 is now, once again, just one year away and healthcare providers remain in various stages of readiness. Meanwhile, Wolters Kluwer Health is drawing on its wealth of knowledge and expertise to deliver strategies and guides to help providers make the transition as smoothly as possible. Over the course of October, the ProVation Medical blog will be shining a light on how to get ready for the ICD-10 transition.
