ICD-10 rush hour: What you need to do on transition day
As I type these words there are only 20 days until October 1st, AKA, ICD-10 transition day. Most people in the healthcare industry are wondering what that day will be like. What will happen? What will they have to do?
Our suggestion would be if you’re the praying kind – pray. If you have a lucky talisman, you may want to rub it or give it a shake that day.
Will October 1st be a bit like Y2K? Remember how we were all essentially preparing for Armageddon and then nothing really happened, it was sort of a regular, quiet day? Our best guess is that ICD-10 transition day will be something in between a regular day at the office and Armageddon.
