re: Who Will Blink First On Government ICD-10 Deadline?
With the October 2014 ICD10 rollout just around the corner,
I think we will see more providers and hospitals step up their preparations.
Organizations tend to GǣprocrastinateGǥ a little and focus on other more
immediate goals and problems until the deadlines are almost upon them. There
are a lot of other issues concerning providers that they would rather address,
but I would suggest preparations begin or escalate soon if they want to be
ready in time. I think CMS will need to analyze the preparedness of providers
as we get closer to the rollout in order to see if any sort of extension needs
to be applied.
