Strategies to help providers meet the ICD-10 deadline

After a one-year delay, the real, actual ICD-10 transformation deadline is here. Where are organizations in this process? Has the delay helped, or are providers still scrambling to transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10? This edition of Pulse takes a look at the future of coding and how organizations have prepared for the ICD-10 deadline.

In the cover story, contributing writer Evan J. Albright looks at the effect of the new, much larger code set on healthcare organizations' revenue cycles. "We know that productivity will go down, and have concerns on how we will be able to cope with the volume," explains the director of health information management coding at one medical center.

Also in this issue: SearchHealthIT news writer Kristen Lee offers three things to keep in mind as you make the switch to ICD-10, while news and features writer Shaun Sutner talks to larger providers about how they've been preparing for the switch.
