ICD10 deadline set for October 1, 2015
 
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a rule today finalizing Oct. 1, 2015 as the new compliance date for health care providers, health plans, and health care clearinghouses to transition to ICD-10, the tenth revision of the International Classification of Diseases. This deadline allows providers, insurance companies and others in the health care industry time to ramp up their operations to ensure their systems and business processes are ready to go on Oct. 1, 2015.

If your facility has an ICD-10 assessment or survey form, please send it to Barbara Roberts at Barbara.Roberts@iatric.com.

Medical Necessity Ordermate and Medical Necessity Checkmate will have to be updated to the dual coding version (4.2x34) to be compatible with ICD-10 code.  If your facility is ready to start testing ICD-10 codes in MEDITECH TEST, please contact Valerie Barnhart (Valerie.Barnhart@iatric.com) or Barbara Roberts (Barbara.Roberts@iatric.com) to schedule the update in the test environment.
