UPDATE! Stay the Course: Consortium's CTP Announcement on the ICD-10 delay.
The new ICD-10 diagnostic coding schema will affect patient care, finance, information technology, and operations and is a top priority for our provider and health plan members as well as for many organizations that advise and support them.
Currently over 70 organizations and more than 200 technology, finance, coding and administrative staff, managers and executives are collaborating in the design and implementation of collaborative testing and test data-sharing; common mapping and computer assisted coding technologies; training, education, and clinical documentation improvement best practices; and standardized communications among provider, health plans, technology vendors and intermediaries.
Starting in January 2014, MHDC will launch the ICD-10 Collaborative Testing Program to reduce the costs, mitigate the financial and compliance risk and improve the effectiveness of ICD-10 preparation and implementation among our member organizations.
