On April 1, 2014, President Obama signed a law that included the delay of ICD-10 implementation until at least October 1, 2015. Fifty-eight percent of respondents to the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions Live from the Center Webcast Poll expressed disappointment because their organizations wanted the shift to occur as scheduled, according to a new infographic from Deloitte.

This infographic also provides responses from approximately 1,250 healthcare industry professionals regarding optimal ICD-10 scenarios, areas most impacted by the delay and actions that will be taken in response to the delay.
