ICD-10 Delay Alters Provider, Vendor Prep
"We will do study groups, some online training, tutorials. The nice thing about community colleges is we do react on a dime," she says. "We have been watching this for months. We put out notices to all of our membership, [saying] 'You need to be writing the politicians in your state letting them know this will impact our students. In the meantime, start prepping for anything you need to do you help your students prepare.'"
"That has already come out in online tutorials, the majority of which will be free for students so we are not putting a financial impact on them. These are things they can take from home and access what they need. A lot of those programs were online programs anyway, so it is not a methodology change for students."
'Stay the Course'
While the delay of at least one more year has created some confusion, Gordon says she is hearing anecdotally that many providers, payers, and other would-be ICD-10 adopters are "staying the course."
