In this recent article by ICD 10 Monitor, The Healthcare Billing and Management Association (HBMA) resurveyed industry members. Their aim was to learn more about the current progress toward the much-anticipated implementation of ICD-10 in October 2015.
There was good news and some bad news.
The good news is that members are more confident in their system’s capability to handle both ICD-9 and ICD-10 concurrently. However, the bad news is that 23% of respondents reported that their system has not finished updating and 37% of those have not scheduled a time for completion.
The author of the article concludes with “Assuming that Oct. 1, 2015 is really it, there is a massive amount of work to accomplish. Let’s focus on the teamwork and steps required for success. If the same issues exist well into 2015, we shall surely fail.”
