Many articles have been written here and other places about the  ICD-10 coding classification transition and the fastly approaching deadline of October 2014. Thorough and complex information has been provided to healthcare organizations to help them prepare for this huge change.

This topic was found on EHR Intelligence in their article, “ICD“ICD-10 Best Practices: Brace for impact.” It isn’t like providers have nothing to do, but after all the talk about this project, it is time to think about worst case scenarios and prepare for them.
