WEDI extends use of ICD-10 issue reporting database beyond implementation deadline

The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI), the nation’s leading nonprofit authority on the use of health IT to create efficiencies in healthcare information exchange, in partnership with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and other industry associations and partners, announced its searchable ICD-10 Issue Reporting Database – originally launched in early 2014 as part of its ICD-10 Implementation Success Initiative – will continue operation after the transition to ICD-10. Through this database, WEDI, CMS and additional partners help to triage issues and provide valuable information and resources to support healthcare organizations in understanding how the new codes and coding standards will impact diagnosis and inpatient procedures.

Once an issue has been submitted into the ICD-10 Issue Reporting Database, it is reviewed by WEDI staff and submitted on to the appropriate resource. After review, answers are made available online in the searchable database to help other healthcare organizations that may be facing similar issues. If name and contact information is provided, WEDI will also follow up directly.
