In the ever changing world of healthcare in the US, a significant and unprecedented change is on the way for healthcare organizations and medical practitioners. By October 2013, the country will shift from the ICD-9 system of disease classification to ICD-10 or the International Classification of Diseases, 10th edition. Consequently, healthcare organizations might need to completely overhaul their current coding systems alongside the use of new technologies and business strategies to comply with the new system.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of distinguished experts to help healthcare organizations, payors and providers in preparing to meet the demands of ICD-10. They will explore the significant elements of the new system and will provide affected parties with a complete understanding of ICD-10 and its potential impact on their operations and clients.
