Logjam of health IT initiatives could mean delays for HIPAA 5010, ICD-10
In addition to Meaningful Use, which offers a significant potential upside, hospitals and doctors also must contend with the transition to the HIPAA 5010 transaction set in January and, in 2013, the much bigger shift to the ICD-10 diagnostic code set.
