Dear colleagues:

Even though it is still two and a half years away, it’s not too early to begin preparation for the October 1, 2013, transition from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM/PCS. There’s much to do in concert with HIM professionals to develop the knowledge base and documentation infrastructure essential to accurate ICD-10-CM/PCS code capture and reporting.
