Mayo Clinic Senior Revenue Cycle Analyst Hamilton Todd will head a team of subject matter experts signed on to report live for Talk Ten Tuesdays from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference and exhibit now underway in Chicago.

 

Todd, who has worked for the Mayo Clinic since 1993, is responsible for leading and participating in several major projects, including the Clinic’s ICD-10 preparatory efforts. He is among 11 other healthcare professionals who will be broadcasting on behalf of Talk Ten Tuesdays. Three days of broadcasts began with a special Monday edition of the popular Internet radio broadcast that aired live at noon.

“We are scheduled to have four healthcare subject matter experts reporting live from HIMSS for each of the next two days of broadcasts,” Talk Ten Tuesdays Executive Producer and program host Chuck Buck said. “We’re going all-out for this series since this is the last HIMSS before ICD-10 takes effect on Oct. 1, 2015.”

Also participating each day will be Pamela Jodock, senior director of HIMSS Health Business Solutions, according to Buck. Jodock will kick off each broadcast with highlights of the previous day and will preview important ICD-10 events taking place during the week.
