ICD-10 and Health Information Technology

Hello all:

I came across one of the most concise explanations of ICD-10 that I’ve seen yet this morning during my usual perusal of incoming tweets. 🙂

FAQ: How will the transition to ICD-10 codes affect health IT?

The article contains general information about ICD-10, what it is, why its coming, and the challenges the conversion will bring, as well as links to more detailed information.

Those of us involved in the creation of health information through dictation and transcription must educate ourselves about this extremely important change and use the information available to find ways to become an irreplaceable part of the HIM process. As I’ve said before, get your hooks in everywhere you can folks  – being knowledgeable about your customer’s challenges and concerns is a must.

I hope you’re all enjoying the beautiful Autumn colors as much as I am!

Til next time,
-Lynn
