ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee Meeting meets Tuesday, March 5, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., eastern. The agenda includes:

The meeting will be a webcast, and toll-free dial-in access is available for participants at 1-877-267-1577 Meeting ID: 6601, although phone lines are limited, so join early if possible.
CMS also released new checklists and timelines for small and medium provider practices, large provider practices, small hospitals, and payers. These resources can help you determine how your ICD-10 preparations compare with recommended timeframes.
 
Checklists: The checklists offer easy-to-understand lists of tasks that CMS recommends completing before the October 1, 2014, ICD-10 deadline. Each task also includes an estimated timeframe, allowing you to plan based on your current progress. Depending on your organization, you may be able perform some of the tasks on a compressed timeline or at the same time as other tasks.
 
Timelines: The timelines are an at-a-glance resource for getting a sense of how your transition is moving forward. The timelines provide a visual guide to key transition activities by phase.
You can use the checklists and timelines to identify where you need to focus your efforts. Then you can consult the more in-depth ICD-10 resources available on the CMS website.
