AHIMA, ICD-10 Coalition Call for HHS to Limit ICD-10 Delay

Share on Facebook
The American Health Information Management Association recently signed an ICD-10 coalition letter urging HHS to set the new ICD-10 implementation date as Oct. 1, 2015, limiting the delay to one year, according to an insurancenewsnet report.

The letter stressed the importance of a concrete deadline, without which healthcare stakeholders will not know how to create a preparation and investment timeline.

Several organizations, along with AHIMA, signed the letter. Signatories include:

•    Advanced Medical Technology Association
•    America's Health Insurance Plans
•    American Medical Informatics Association
•    BlueCross BlueShield Association
•    College of Healthcare Information Management Executives
•    Health IT Now Coalition
•    Medical Device Manufacturers Association
•    3M Health Information Systems
