ICD-10 Education & Resources

The Wisconsin Medical Society is your partner for a successful transition to ICD-10 – the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition, diagnosis and procedure codes. In April 2014 Congress acted to delay ICD-10 implementation through a provision inserted into the Protecting Access to Medicare Act. Current statute allows implementation of ICD-10 no earlier than October 1, 2015. It’s recommended this extra time be used to maximize implementation efforts.

A successful implementation will include an impact assessment, consistent communication with vendors and health plans, a focused approach to clinical documentation improvement, code-set training and more. All of these components take time and strategic planning. Continue the momentum forward with ICD-10 and ensure a seamless transition.
