READY OR NOT Here Comes ICD-10

GE Healthcare, March 13, 2012

October 1 2013, was to mark a seismic shift in the healthcare landscape. On this date, the U.S. government was set to retire the more than 30-year-old International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision (ICD-9) diagnosis coding standard and officially adopt its successor, ICD-10, for ambulatory services and inpatient discharges. While the Department of Health and Human Services recently announced they will be extending this deadline, now is still time to act.
