On Oct. 1, 2014, the ICD-10 system will replace the current ICD-9 codes. ICD-10 implementation will change the way coding is currently done and the code set will grow from 14,315 diagnosis codes to more than 69,099 codes. These changes will require a significant effort to implement the new system and this is the time to start preparations in your practice.
The American College of Cardiology has developed information and resources to help you prepare. Research ICD-10 codes and guidelines, review a webinar, watch videos and more on CardioSource.org.
