Nancy Leveille and Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

The change to ICD 10 will occur effective October 1, 2015, just three months from now!  CMS has posted the "ICD 10 Quick Start Guide" at the website below for facilities to use to assess their progress towards transitioning to ICD 10.  NYSHFA will be conducting an audio conference on July 10th to assist Administrators and DONs with the transition as well.  Previous audio conferences on ICD 10 coding are archived on the NYSHFA/FQC website. To register for the July 10 audio conference, see link below:
