Physicians are not ready for ICD-10: Here's why


An exclusive Medical Economics poll finds that physicians are still experiencing considerable roadblocks in ICD-10 preparations




Primary care physicians are not yet ready for ICD-10, and still are experiencing considerable challenges in preparing for the transition on October 1, 2015, according to an exclusive Medical Economics poll.

Only 38% of physician respondents said they were will be ready for the transition. When asked what the greatest roadblocks to getting prepared are, one-third of respondents said the combination of training cost and/or time, software vendors readiness, physician and staff buy-in were all considerable challenges. The biggest post-transition concern for physicians was cash flow issues.

Furthermore, nearly two-thirds (65%) of respondents said the transition should be delayed again.

Medical Economics surveyed physician subscribers of its enewsletters between May 13 to May 26, 2015. We received 526 responses from physicians.
