Still Haven't Started ICD-10? Here's How
Next week marks another ICD-10 milestone: One year left to go. For those of you just deciding to take it seriously now, start with education.
You can start with some free resources to help you understand what the ICD-10 transition means for your medical practice.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has an extensive list of resources that explain how to prepare for ICD-10 implementation. You can download:
- Fact sheets
The World Health Organization (WHO) has a free ICD-10 Training Tool. (But it's not the ICD-10-CM/PCS versions that U.S. healthcare organizations will be using)
The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) ICD-10 Playbook has a great deal of content to help plan the ICD-10 transition.
Reach out to your local professional societies. They should be planning educational and training programs.
