The new mandated International Classification of Diseases, 10th edition (ICD-10) must be implemented by October 1, 2013. ICD-10—a complete replacement of the ICD-9 code sets used to report healthcare diagnoses and procedures—will affect all segments of the healthcare industry, including providers, clearinghouses and health plans, as well as government agencies.
ICD-10, however, is more than an IT effort. It is a regulation that has a large impact on policies, business operations, clinical processes, and healthcare outcomes research. Preparing for ICD-10 will require an organization-wide approach and an understanding of all the areas impacted by its adoption.
Noblis—a nonprofit science, technology and strategy organization with a proven record of success working on ICD-10—is pleased to facilitate a panel discussion to exchange information and ideas among key public and private sector stakeholders. Together, the panel experts will discuss the risks and opportunities of the ICD-10 transition, what their organizations are doing now to get started, and where ICD-10 fits compared to other large initiatives.
