This free, web-based guide offers updated and interactive information to help healthcare providers understand, and follow, the steps needed to meet ICD-10 deadlines. The ICD-10 PlayBook is a singular resource that equips healthcare providers with the critical information they need to succeed for ICD-10 transformation, including ideas around sustainability.
Organized by HIMSS, the range of cross-industry groups that developed the ICD-10 PlayBook includes HIMSS task forces, leading associations across providers and health plans, commercial banks, health IT vendors and others, making it a robust, information-rich and unique high value offering that is freely accessible. The ICD-10 PlayBook will primarily assist healthcare providers; however, other audiences will greatly benefit, such as health plans and banks.
The Playbook is organized by topic; current topic areas include Initiation, Planning, Implementation, Go-Live, Post Go-Live Monitor and Control and Closure. ICD-10 project plan templates, handouts from ICD-10 sessions at HIMSS11 and links to industry webinars and events focused on preparing for ICD-10 are included. In addition, a Frequently Asked Questions section offers details on ICD-10 information and the resources available on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services website.
An evolving tool that will be continuously updated, the PlayBook includes a complete list of participating organizations that have provided content and supported the development of the PlayBook. Organizations include healthcare associations, payers, banks, and healthcare systems.
