On October 1, 2015, the U.S. Healthcare Industry transitioned to ICD-10 coding in order to replace the 30-year old ICD-9 coding system. This epic transition seemed to sneak up on everyone, which is why many providers are just now realizing the effects of how this transition affects their documentation and reimbursement performance.
