ICD-10: Scheduling

Because this is the last month of the year, you should take time to make sure that schedules for ICD-10 implementation are set.

  • It is time to schedule documentation assessments for any providers who have not had them, or to schedule a second round of assessments to measure progress.
  • It is time to schedule code set training for any office personnel that still needs it.
  • It is time to talk with your vendors to be put on their schedule for any updates or training on your systems in relation to ICD-10.
  • It is time to schedule testing with your health plans that offer it.

There is a lot to do this month to make your schedule ready for next year’s implementation. Take time to get a jump on it before the new (implementation year) begins.
