    ICD-10 is coming on October 1, 2014.

    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has mandated that all entities covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) transition from the International Classification of Diseases version 9 (ICD-9-CM) to version 10 (ICD-10-CM/PCS) on October 1, 2014. This represents a huge shift for the health care industry but many public health entities also rely on the receipt of ICD-9-CM coded data from HIPAA-covered entities to conduct regular surveillance activities. It is imperative that public health entities prepare their systems, processes and people for the transition to ensure continuity of surveillance services and functions.
