Roundup of the best twitter responses to the ICD-10 Delay


Last Friday, the HHS announced the final rule that changes the implementation deadline for the transition to ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS from October 1, 2013 to October 1, 2014. AHIMA CEO Lynne Thomas Gordon, MBA, RHIA, FACHE, CAE, stated, “ICD-10-CM/PCS implementation is inevitable, but today’s news gives the healthcare community the certainty and clarity it needs to move forward with implementation, testing, and training.”

The ICD-10 delay announcement generated a huge buzz across the healthcare community with professionals going to Twitter expressing their opinions with utter candor. Here is a roundup of my favorite Twitter reactions to the ICD-10 delay:




Probably the most ironic twitter response to the ICD-10 delay came from the AMA after sending letters to the HSS and Congress urging a 2 year delay.
