CMS launches website to help practices prepare for ICD-10

Article

A new website created by CMS aims to help practice owners come up with a plan to implement ICD-10.

A new website created by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) aims to help practice owners come up with a plan to implement the International Statistical Classification of Diseases-10th Revision (ICD-10.)

The images below provide an overview of the site, called Road to 10.


The site walks practitioners through a five question quiz that assesses their type of practice and size, types of vendors and payers, and ICD-10 readiness.


From there, a downloadable action plan is developed that outlines training, interoperability, and testing processes.

The site also features testimonials from physicians in various specialties who are in the process of implementing ICD-10. Other helpful information including webinars, frequently-asked questions, and charts highlighting the differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 is also on the website.

In February, CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner said that there would be no more ICD-10 delays, in spite of concerns that practices won’t be ready by the October 1, 2014, deadline.
