ICD-10 delay creates headaches

InformationWeek, April 4, 2014

Killing ICD-10 would have made a lot of doctors happy, despite all the money wasted preparing for the transition to the new diagnosis and medical billing codes. Delaying it for a year may be a relief to them, as well, but it's nothing but grief for ICD-10 project leaders. Though a consortium of hospital and healthcare IT groups protested against the consequences of delay for ICD-10, politically this proved to be a minor consideration compared with appeasing the doctor lobby, which really wanted a permanent fix to the Medicare reimbursement formula, the subject of repeated "doc fix" delays.
