Statistics on Vendor, Provider, Insurer ICD-10 Readiness
The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange has sent HHS the results of its latest survey on ICD-10 readiness among healthcare stakeholders. The most recent survey results are based on responses gathered in October 2013 from 196 providers, 59 vendors and 98 health plans. Key takeaways include:
+Just 25 percent of vendors reported having completed product development for ICD-10 compatibility. However, the number of vendors who reported being halfway or less than halfway done was about 20 percent, down from about 50 percent in a February 2013 survey.
+About three-fifths of health plans have completed their impact assessment, and one-fifth reported their assessment is almost complete
+One-third of health plans had already begun or expected to begin external testing by the end of 2013, down from one-half in the February 2013 survey. About 60 percent expect to begin in the first half of 2014.
