ICD-10: Are You Ready?

The adoption of ICD-10 represents both a regulatory mandate and a call for transformation. With a compliance deadline of October 1, 2015, the transition to ICD-10 is highly complex and can lead to significant changes in people, processes, and technology. 

This program provides an overview of the requirements from experts in the field as well as lessons learned from current ICD-10 conversion projects. The following segments also highlight leading practices to enable efficient and effective conversion and potential process improvements through effective ICD-10 implementation.

We would like to extend a special thank you to the generous sponsors who made videoing the ICD-10 program possible: Avior Computing, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan, Massachusetts General Physicians Organization, MindLeaf Technologies, Inc.
