IM.01.01.01 is similar to the old standard IM.1.10; however, The Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO) has reformatted, renumbered, and rewritten it to focus on IM planning.

Complying with IM.01.01.01 requires an ongoing, continually evolving plan based on the organization’s mission, goals, and needs. Because IM touches every department and influences most decisions about the services that providers render, planning for it should be an integral part of the organization’s annual strategic goals process.

Organizations should also conduct a periodic assessment of user needs and an assessment of the long-term goals for the facility. This ongoing planning will ensure that the organization continues to improve patient care and safety as the organization evolves.

Many believe and this inudcles JATA's own Angela Carmichael who gave a very good webinar on ICD-10 the other day that regardless of what the AMA hopes for, the transition to ICD-10 is a done deal. It remains to be seen whether hospitals, physician leaders and educators, health insurers, malpractice insurers, CMS, and regulatory agencies are able and willing to [INVALID] the collaborations with physicians and all other boots on the clinic floor so that they will WANT to learn ICD-10 and employ it. To say simply, You had better learn this, so come to this seminar/webinar/weekend CME program/etc., is insufficient. It won't work because it does nothing to engage any party in the needs of all parties. Can you [INVALID] alignment among parties so that learning and using ICD-10 is a natural, genuine aspect of a relationship? And indeed this is exactly the same relationship that weds all parties to value, to compliance, to managing common risk including the risk to the patient.This is the time to bring people together at the table. This is not the time to divide the pie. This is the time to bake a new one. The successful ones will be those who have the courage to [INVALID] and test new recipes.
