ICD-10 is the latest version of the standard for identifying and classifying diseases and conditions. The current version, ICD-9, has been in use for many years and the Department of Health and Human Services has dictated that the industry should adopt ICD-10 to gain the greater granularity of specificity that the new version provides. The transition has been delayed several times, the latest of which occurred in August 2012. The current deadline for compliance is October 1, 2014.
FlexMedical has already begun testing and integration of ICD-10 into both the EMR / EHR and Practice Management modules. We will be working closely with payers and partners to ensure compatibility well before the compliance deadline.
