Elsevier/MC Strategies has announced its continued commitment to the ICD-10 transition and the introduction of a major revision to its e-book, A Guide to Education and Training for ICD-10 Implementation. Makes one wonder if the revision is about what to do in case of a delay.

Knowledge Speak brought this news to our attention in their article, “Elsevier / MC Strategies updates e-book on ICD-10 implementation.” They also announced an upcoming Spring 2012 schedule of new Revenue Cycle eLearning releases, including the revised ICD-10 Readiness Assessment, Mosby’s Medical Terminology 2.0, and the new EduCode Clinical Documentation Improvement Curriculum.

Having developed its ICD-10 Roadmap to help healthcare organizations prepare for the ICD-10 transition, Elsevier maintains that planning and education are still critical and that organizations should still work toward the October 2013 implementation date.
