Christiana Care Health SysytemICD-10

JULY 2, 2015

90 Days to ICD-10 Compliance Date

Dear Colleague:

On October 1, 2015, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) will be moving from version 9 (ICD-9) to version 10 (ICD-10).

The ICD-10 mandate has been delayed in previous years, but all indicators point to the October 1, 2015 federally mandated compliance date.

ICD-10 is the 10th edition of the World Health Organization's International Classification of Diseases, which serves to facilitate evaluation of medical processes and outcomes and enhance accurate payment of services rendered.

Practically every person working with patients within the care continuum or the billing / reimbursement cycle at Christiana Care Health System will be impacted in some way.

Your Colleagues,

Ken Silverstein, M.D.
Chief Medical Officer


Sharon Anderson
Senior Vice President, Quality, Patient Safety
& Population Health Management
