ICD-10 Poll Reveals Few Problems in Transition


Despite all the hoopla surrounding ICD-10, nearly half the practices polled by Physicians Practice had no problems in transitioning to the new code set.

Was the ICD-10 transition much ado about nothing?Maybe it wasn’t as easy as nothing, but according to an exclusive Physicians Practice poll, practices didn’t seem to have a ton of problems with it.In an online poll of 110 readers, Physicians Practice found that 47.3 percent of practices had no problems at all with the transition and were maintaining their usual rate of rejected claims. This was by far the most selected option among all choices. After this, 25.5 percent of respondents said the transition had gone “so-so,” 14.5 percent said it had gone “miserable,” and 12.5 percent said it was "too early to tell."The survey also polled practices on the biggest problems they had with the ICD-10 transition, its impact on the work flow of their physicians and practitioners, and much more. The complete results to the five-question poll can be found above. Alternatively, a PDF of the survey results can be found here.
