A new survey of more than 1,000 office-based physician practices expressed widespread and significant concern about the cost and the workflow burden perceived to be coming their way from the planned, nationwide rollout of the ICD-10 diagnostic and procedural codes.

More than 55% of respondents from 1,200 office-based practices surveyed by the MGMA-ACPME indicated they were “very concerned” about the overall cost of converting to ICD-10, which is scheduled by federal rule to launch Oct. 1, 2014.
