What is your reaction to the news that CMS plans to re-examine the ICD-10 implementation timeline?

  • I strongly feel the implementation date should be postponed.
  • Our facility or practice is on track for the October 1, 2013 implementation date, so I am indifferent about any potential postponement.
  • I don't think the transition to ICD-10 should be delayed.
