CMS Posts Podcasts and Transcripts on National Provider Call on ICD-10 Conversion Activities

By

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced Tuesday that it has released four podcasts and a video slideshow presentation from the May 18, 2011 national provider call on “CMS ICD-10 Conversion Activities, Including a Lab Case Study.”

 

Janis Oppelt, ICD-10 e-news contributing editor, reported on this event the following day. It was during the question and answer period of this national provider call that CMS flatly denied that there would be an extension of the October 1, 2013 ICD-10 implementation date.

CMS reported that the entire presentation is now available on the CMS YouTube Channel as a video slideshow that includes the call audio and captioning. Audio from the presentation has been divided into four podcasts and includes the following:

Podcast 1of 4: Welcome and ICD-10 Overview

Podcast 2 of 4: Case Study on Translating the Lab NCDs

Podcast 3 of 4: ICD-10 Updates from CMS Subject Matter Experts

Podcast 4 of 4: Question and Answer Session

The podcasts, slideshow presentation, and written transcripts can be found on the Teleconferences page of the CMS ICD-10 website.

The four audio podcasts with corresponding written transcripts, as well as the full written transcript of the call can be accessed by scrolling to the “Downloads” section at the bottom of the page, said CMS in its announcment.

To access the video slideshow presentation, select the link in the “Related Links Outside CMS” section of the webpage, advises CMS.
