WEDI launches ICD-10 readiness survey

June 11, 2015 in Medical Technology

Despite a flurry of legislative activity at the state and federal level clouding the waters around ICD-10 in recent weeks, the deadline for the code set switchover is still set for Oct. 1 – less than four months away. How ready are you?

The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange on Thursday announced the release of its latest ICD-10 readiness survey, and is calling on providers, payers, vendors and clearinghouses to take the poll by July 10.

“Our most recent ICD-10 readiness survey was conducted in February of this year, and we received a great response with nearly 1,200 respondents helping us to track the progress and readiness of specific areas of the industry,” said Jim Daley, WEDI past-chair and ICD-10 Workgroup co-chair, in a press statement.

“Now that it’s ‘crunch time’ with only a few months to go until the implementation deadline, it is important that we evaluate what progress the industry has made in the last several months and what areas need a greater focus in the months ahead.”
