ICD-10: Waiting with Baited Breathe…..

To no one’s surprise, the AHIMA ICD-10 and CAC Summit on April 22-23 was quite a forum for those who attended to voice their reaction to the ICD-10 delay.  A survey of participants found:

  • 2 percent of respondents said their organization has spent more than $1 million on implementation;
  • 91 percent of respondents said ICD-10 should not go into effect in stages;
  • 50 percent of respondents would – if allowed – be interested in voluntary reporting of ICD-10 codes beginning on Oct. 1 2014;
  • 54 percent of respondents did not want the partial code set freeze lifted.
