CMS/WEDI Implementation Success Initiative
The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) is partnering with CMS and other public and private organizations to develop the ICD-10 Implementation Success Initiative. The first phase of the Initiative, a searchable database of ICD-10 issues, is open to the public to submit questions. WEDI, CMS, and industry partners will update the database with information and resources to help health care organizations who submit issues understand how the new codes and standards will affect reporting of diagnoses and inpatient procedures.
The goal of this initiative is to ensure a successful ICD-10 transition for all stakeholders, including health care providers, payers, clearinghouses, and vendors.
