Modern Healthcare

The federal government has finalized a one-year delay in the compliance deadline for the nationwide conversion to ICD-10 code sets. The delay, first proposed in April, will move the compliance deadline to Oct. 1, 2014.

HHS said the extra time would allow healthcare organizations—small organizations in particular—adequate time to get ready for the changeover.
