11 Health Care Groups Join State ICD-10 Collaborative
Eleven health care groups have joined the newly formed California ICD-10 Collaborative. The collaborative was designed to help health care stakeholders transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 code sets to accommodate codes for new diseases and procedures. Participants of the collaborative -- including health care providers, insurers and vendors -- plan to share best practices and collaborate on code set testing, lowering risks and reducing implementation costs.
