I’m in total agreement. CMS dreppod the ball back in late 2008, prior to the Final Rule mandating ICD-10-CM/PCS in 2013, by failing to publish empirical data from other early adopters of ICD-10 that indeed the transition would improve quality of care, patient safety and lead to improved outcomes. While we know that gaining early by-in from physicians is critical, we are now less than 650 days out from the go-live date with only anecdotal support for ICD-10. It didn’t take a crystal ball to know that there would be tremendous physician push-back as the go-live date loomed ever closer. Regardless of the AMA’s position and clout, I would not hold my breath in anticipation of a delay, or reprieve, in the transition to ICD-10. In the end, hospital providers must work that much harder to engage physicians and gain their support for the transition, all along hoping that ICD-10’s touted benefits will sway physicians to support the mandate.

Many believe and this icldunes JATA's own Angela Carmichael who gave a very good webinar on ICD-10 the other day that regardless of what the AMA hopes for, the transition to ICD-10 is a done deal. It remains to be seen whether hospitals, physician leaders and educators, health insurers, malpractice insurers, CMS, and regulatory agencies are able and willing to create the collaborations with physicians and all other boots on the clinic floor so that they will WANT to learn ICD-10 and employ it. To say simply, You had better learn this, so come to this seminar/webinar/weekend CME program/etc., is insufficient. It won't work because it does nothing to engage any party in the needs of all parties. Can you create alignment among parties so that learning and using ICD-10 is a natural, genuine aspect of a relationship? And indeed this is exactly the same relationship that weds all parties to value, to compliance, to managing common risk including the risk to the patient.This is the time to bring people together at the table. This is not the time to divide the pie. This is the time to bake a new one. The successful ones will be those who have the courage to create and test new recipes.
