What Does The ICD-10 Delay Mean For Physician Practices?

Earlier this week, the Senate voted to delay ICD-10 implementation, as well as to approve a temporary 12-month patch to the SGR payment formula that will prevent deep Medicare cuts. Some groups have expressed dissapointment in the decision, but for many physicians, the delay is a relief. Although some large health systems and hospitals were prepared, many physician practices lagged behind.

Now, physician practices face another challenge in deciding when they should invest in the resources to prepare for the switchover. Experts say that practices should keep preparing for the conversion by “wrapping up any loose ends on their EHR implementation and ensure their EHR will be ICD-10 ready.”
