ICD–10 Program

Message from Marci Burke
ICD–10 Program Director

The ICD-10 Implementation date is October 1, 2015

Last year’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) legislation that included language to delay the program last year expired on March 31. The new bill, Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015, did not contain language to further delay ICD-10 implementation.

The ICD-10 Program has an extensive education plan in place for all areas of Dignity Health impacted by ICD-10. Be on the lookout for communications from the ICD-10 mailbox regarding:

  • CME eligible education for providers that includes eLearning, in-person, WebEx, and videos-on-demand
  • Facility guidance on systems, forms and reports remediation that has to be executed by facilities for ICD-10 implementation
  • Updates on Cerner enhancements relating to ICD-10
  • ICD-10 Virtual Codebook (Mobile App)
  • In-person and eLearning, including ICD-10 Boot Camp for coders
  • eLearning and job aids for impacted roles
Work also begins on Command Center preparation-as implementation is less than six months away!

Please contact the team with questions at and check back for updates!

Thank you, Marci
