A gap analysis is an effective tool that can be used to assess where you are on the road to transition, what obstacles are in your way, and what you need to do to overcome them to achieve your goal of successful ICD-10 implementation. You will use the gap analysis to assess your strengths (staff, education, software, etc.), your weaknesses (skill sets, new code sets, etc.), the opportunities available (boot camps, online training, chapter meetings, etc.), and the obstacles that way slow down your progress.
