The HIMSS/WEDI ICD-10 National Pilot Program, an industry-wide healthcare collaborative, is being established to assist the healthcare industry in its efforts to prepare for ICD-10 testing and to share best practices from early adopter organizations.
For providers, healthcare providers, plans, and their business partners to be ready for ICD-10, a collaborative testing effort is required.
This multi-stakeholder industry project represents collaboration at its best by including every entity within the healthcare revenue cycle (providers, health plans, billing companies, clearinghouses, government, industry associations, vendors, etc.).
This Pilot Testing will use standard test case scenarios which are being collected, vetted and developed by ICD-10 National Pilot Program participants. Test case scenarios are:
De-identified clinical claims; natively coded to ICD-10 by live, certified ICD-10 coders
Representative of 100-200 of the most common medical conditions in healthcare
Can be used as a base set for your testing---but may be customized as required
Available, free of charge, in the HIMSS ICD-10 PlayBook for entities that must test for ICD-10
The ICD-10 National Pilot Program is currently underway through July 31, 2013.
An analysis of the Pilot Testing outcomes data will be published in the HIMSS ICD-10 PlayBook in by mid-September to assist all stakeholders’ preparation for ICD-10. The report will contain lessons learned and recommendations gleaned from the Pilot Program.
After July 31, 2013, any organizations that have not tested as part of the ICD-10 NPP program will have an opportunity to participate in future industry stakeholder collaborative programs or test on their own.
