Re: ICD-10 delay: how will you use the time wisely?
The delay won't significantly change the outcome, I expect. If you weren't going to get it done for this year, you are almost certain to fail next year.
On the other hand, any delay is this is wonderful. The untold billions of dollars this will cost, and the huge losses in reimbursements to providers over claims denied because of 'coding errors' real or imagined, are utterly unlikely to lead to any significant health improvements. The real benefit is for bureaucrats who'll have more statistics to fiddle with, while actually accomplishing nothing. But at least they'll be able to tell not just how many attacks by parrots there are every year, but what body parts were injured.
We can only pray for a long enough delay for there to be a change of administration and then a stake through the heart of this shambling monstrosity.
