HIM WEEKLY WEDNESDAY - Possible ICD-10 Delay - 3/27/14

It was a crazy day for AHIMA and the HIM profession yestereday.  It was discovered that some language about delaying ICD-10 for another year was "sneeked in" to a bill that is going to be voted on today.  This would be devastating to most healthcare organizations, colleges, software vendors, etc. who have already spend countless hours and dollars preparing and training for ICD-10 to be ready for the transition this October 1.


AHIMA found out about this at the last hour and jumped into action.  They made calls to congress and asked the membership to all make calls to their state senators to ask them to please vote no for the bill as written.
