October 1, 2014, Deadline Firm for ICD-10
As the dust from HIMSS13 settles, CMS would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth to say hello and discuss the ICD-10 transition and the future of eHealth with us. In case you weren’t able to get to the booth, here are some of the highlights from the conference:

  • Acting CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner confirmed the October 1, 2014, ICD-10 deadline and encouraged everyone to work diligently toward a successful transition
  • CMS met face-to-face with stakeholders to share information and listen to feedback about ICD-10
  • During the eHealth Town Hall, CMS discussed EHRs, ICD-10, and HIPAA administrative simplification and their combined potential to transform the future of health care
  • CMS distributed several hundred thumb drives packed with ICD-10 resources, which are also available on the ICD-10 website

CMS looks forward to applying insights from HIMSS13 and continuing to work with stakeholders to inform our outreach as we help the health care industry prepare for ICD-10.
