NEW ICD-10 IMPLEMENTATION HANDBOOKS NOW AVAILABLE
CMS has developed four Implementation Handbooks as additional resources to assist the health care industry with the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes. Each guide provides detailed information for planning and executing the ICD-10 transition process. Use the guides as a reference whether you’re in the midst of the transition or just beginning the process.
The appendix of each handbook references relevant templates which are available for download in both Excel and PDF files below. The templates are customizable and have been created to help entities clarify staff roles, set internal deadlines/responsibilities and assess vendor readiness.
