It’s an ICD-10, ICD-10, ICD-10 World!

walked-into-lamppostRegardless of all of the humorous codes that we have grown to chuckle at over the last few years, we are now finally in an ICD-10 World. Today, October 1st, 2015 would have been the end for some of a few years of their lives. Similar to the world of Y2k, this will be the culmination of a lot of work that many people (including yours truly) have worked on these last few years. Let’s thank all of those healthcare information technology professionals, analysts, go live support and adoption teams who have made this possible, all for the cause of better patient care. There has been thousands of hours that have been put into transitioning our nation’s healthcare providers and payers to ICD-10 so that we can finally get on to a 21st Century diagnosis terminology. It certainly has been quite a ride.
