WEDI recently released the whitepaper "ICD-10 Critical Metrics" to help the industry identify and plan for the potential financial impact of ICD-10 implementation on the nation's health care organizations. Available for download on WEDI's website, the whitepaper developed a set of detailed metrics for hospitals, practitioners and payers that establishes a basis to perform benchmark testing prior to ICD-10 implementation. These standards and metrics provide the baseline for monitoring and early warning indicators that health care organizations can use to ensure that their business and mitigation plans after implementation are successful. "ICD-10 Critical Metrics" is available for download at www.wedi.org in the Resources section alongside WEDI's other recently released ICD-10 related whitepapers.
