HealthLeaders Media

ICD-10 implementation remains on track for October 1, 2015, after a series of Congressional spending bills unveiled late Tuesday contained no new delay provisions, despite the efforts of at least two state medical associations.

Proponents of keeping the 2015 date, including healthcare systems and hospitals, stepped up their own campaigns in recent days, with several large hospital associations, including the American Hospital Association, America’s Essential Hospitals, and the Association of American Medical Colleges, sending a letter to Congress asking for no further delays.
