Hospitals and other providers now have access to a Quick Start Guide to help with the transition to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition (ICD-10) procedure and diagnosis codes. Released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the guide provides an outline of the critical activities needed for a successful ICD-10 launch on Oct. 1. Also included in the guide are instructions for accessing ICD-10 codes and links to training and testing resources available through CMS.
America’s Essential Hospitals is hosting a July 16 webinar to help hospitals make a seamless transition to ICD-10. More information will be released on our webinar page in the coming days.
