Free Web Seminar Will Address Conversion to ICD-10

Although not directly linked to health care reform, implementation of the 10th version of the International Classification of Disease (ICD-10) is an integral part of overall reform efforts to improve clinical information. The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration is hosting a web seminar Sept. 23 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the “Impact of ICD-10 on Safety Net Providers.”  The seminar will provide technical assistance and examples of how safety-net providers have started plans to comply with the conversion to ICD-10, as well as Version 5010. Presenters will also discuss strategies to avoid implementation bottlenecks. To register, go to Contact: Matt Absher, (916) 552-7669,
