ICD–10 Program

Message from Marci Burke, ICD–10 Program Director.

As many of you are aware, the House and Senate passed legislation that will delay ICD-10 until at least October 1, 2015. This bill was signed into law by President Obama on April 1, 2014.

The ICD-10 Program Team is currently evaluating each work stream to identify the benefits, risks, financial impacts and metrics of this implementation delay and will share the outcomes with senior management in the near future. Our goal is to determine how we can leverage this extra time to maximize the benefit for Dignity Health. Once our leadership has evaluated the information, we will share their decisions and resulting program adjustments with you.

During this period, I ask that you continue your work and diligence on the ICD-10 program. Unless there is a compelling reason to delay or discontinue, please move forward with ICD-10 initiatives because many have a direct benefit to Dignity Health and the future of the program. If you have any questions or concerns about a specific activity, please feel free to reach out to the ICD-10 Program Team for clarification.

Thank you for your support of the ICD-10 program.
