AMA House of Delegates rejects ICD-10 report
Modern Physician

An American Medical Association board of trustees report that recommended against a strategy of bypassing the ICD-10 set of diagnostic and procedural codes and skipping straight to ICD-11 was rejected by the AMA House of Delegates on Wednesday morning. A report exploring the feasibility of going straight to ICD-11 was called for at last year’s annual House of Delegates meeting and was included as part of a new Stop the Implementation of ICD-10 policy.
