The one-year delay in the implementation of ICD-10 may have caused an upheaval in healthcare organizations' plans; however, the extra time can prove to be beneficial.

Here are four ways to use the delay to your advantage, according to an abeo blog post:

1. Move forward with dual coding.
2. Re-evaluate plans to use translation or "crosswalk" programs that offer partial automatic conversion of ICD-9 codes to ICD-10.
3. Expand your testing procedures.
4. Stay in touch with developing news.
