A new infographic from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services outlines five key steps for health care providers transitioning to ICD-10: make a plan, train staff, update processes, talk with vendors and health plans, and test systems and processes. The infographic includes links to associated resources, and can be posted online and shared on social media. Health care providers and others must include ICD-10 diagnosis and procedure codes on Medicare and other health care claims beginning Oct. 1. For more on the transition to ICD-10, visit www.aha.org or www.cms.gov.
