ICD-10 Prep Timing is Crucial
Health Leaders Media

The move to ICD-10 threatens to create billing chaos for physicians, which could in turn create serious financial problems for practices. One of the best ways to avoid problems is to make sure your billing staff know the many, many new codes and how they are applied differently than ICD-9 codes, so you need a specific plan for educating staff about ICD-10.

But wait before you get the staff together for a PowerPoint®. Timing will be essential to an effective education program, so you might want to put your plan in place and then wait for the right moment to pull the trigger.
