… stop pro­cras­ti­nat­ing

Modern Healthcare - - OPINIONS LETTERS -

Ob­vi­ously, many have spec­u­lated that ICD-10 im­ple­men­ta­tion would be post­poned. I feel that it has been put off long enough and now it is time to stick to the time­lines.

Our coun­try is so far be­hind the times when it comes to med­i­cal cod­ing and med­i­cal care—not to men­tion many other fields. While other coun­tries fly past us, we sit here us­ing the same out­dated meth­ods year af­ter year. They need to stop talk­ing, stop pro­cras­ti­nat­ing and start do­ing some­thing.
