The Transition to ICD-10: Key Considerations for Physician Practices

The Transition to ICD-10 Guide

Despite recent legislation delaying the implementation of the ICD-10 diagnostic code set until October 1, 2015, it is important for practices to plan for the transition.

This transition will require considerable changes in office processes and is expected to affect every aspect of business operations. 

This white paper from the MMS Physician Practice Resource Center provides guidance in six areas:

  • Education and training
  • Process analysis of health plan contracts and coverage determinations
  • Changes to encounter forms or superbills
  • IT system changes
  • Increased documentation costs
  • Cash flow disruption
