 ICD-9/10 and SNOMED-CT- Options?
Are you going to ICD-10 or staying with ICD-9? Or is anyone implementing SNOMED-CT--and if so, are you doing ICD-10 before or after adopting SNOMED-CT?

Answer Wiki:
I can't provide a concrete answer, unfortunately. However, a recent tip that we published, which examined a <a href="https://searchhealthit.techtarget.com/tip/SNOMED-CT-will-be-coming-to-EHR-systems-and-patient-records-near-you">SNOMED CT implementation at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center</a>, might offer some insight into what you might want to do if you are still using ICD-9. I hope this helps. --Brian

I didn’t think it was possible _not_ to convert to ICD-10. There may be a time when both I9 and I10 are used, but as of October 2013, I10 will be required by law. Am I mistaken?
