ICD-10 as a Strategic Enabler

Webinar hosted by New England Society for Healthcare Strategy Webinar series

As of October 1, 2015, the U.S. healthcare industry will transition to the use of the ICD-10 diagnosis code set. With the number of codes expanding from about 17,000 in ICD-9 to approximately 140,000 in ICD-10, the ability to capture more detailed diagnostic information becomes available. This will facilitate better measurement of the quality, safety, and efficacy of care. By mining this new data, organizations can measure key metrics to help drive strategic initiatives within the organization. This webinar explores the rationale of ICD 10, examines key considerations, and offers a critical path toward ICD-10 conversion.
