Mapping the Way to ICD-10 Readiness: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s Approach

The mapping between ICD-9 and ICD-10 code sets will have two major impacts on healthcare, predicts Dennis Winkler, ICD-10 technical program director for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, which has created a roadmap for the transition that it is sharing with the industry. Winkler describes where health plans should be on the ICD-10 timeline at the start of 2012, and defines the two major challenges the health plan expects to face as it enters the testing phase of the transition.

Dennis Winkler presented during, Mapping the Way to ICD-10 Readiness: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s Approach, a 45-minute webinar, during which he will share BCBS of Michigan’s mapping strategy along with other organizational readiness tactics for ICD-10. Winkler will address: BCBSM’s six dimensions of neutrality and how the BCBSM plan incorporates these aspects into ICD-10 readiness; working with external vendors and constituents; ICD-10 systems testing and training; and more.
