Free ICD-10 Implementation Tools

Don’t lose sight of the ICD-10 deadline! October 1, 2013 is closer than you think…

Did you know?

You should have already completed ICD-10 impact assessment, risk analysis, and mitigation planning. If you haven’t, you’re in good company – industry surveys indicate that the majority of healthcare payers are behind on their ICD-10 implementation.

Myth Buster

Many people still believe that the new ICD-10 CM and PCS code set transition from ICD-9-CM will simply involve one-to-one mapping, but it will also require one-to-many general equivalency mappings (GEMs). This will require analysis, system reconfiguration, and thorough staff training. ICD-10 Myth Buster: Is the ICD-10 implementation really just a simple code mapping effort?
