Six Months In: Preparation Eased Community Hospital Transition to ICD-10
by Beth Kim, VP of Revenue Integrity, CHC

October 1, 2015, was a much-anticipated day for the U.S. healthcare system. It was the final compliance date for the shift from ICD-9 to ICD-10, a set of codes used to report diagnoses and inpatient procedures to identify health trends and track morbidity and mortality.
