A federal official involved in the ICD-10 launch couldn’t give a room full of stakeholders a firm date on for the new implementation of the medical code set, but suggested on Wednesday that an announcement is imminent.

Denise Buenning, acting deputy director with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Office of e-Health Standards and Services reportedly told attendees at a two-day ICD-10 summit held in Washington, DC, that a firm date for the implementation would be forthcoming.
