Leading Healthcare Experts, Newsmakers to Appear on Live Broadcasts from AHIMA I-10 Summit

Original story posted on: April 11, 2012

Some of the nation’s leading healthcare authorities and newsmakers will share their insight, perspective and expertise on the timely subject of ICD-10 — specifically, on the new compliance date for implementation — when Talk-Ten-Tuesday hosts Chuck Buck and Kim Charland broadcast live from the AHIMA I-10 Summit on Monday, April 16 and Tuesday, April 17.


Among those scheduled to appear is Doug Fridsma, Ph.D., director of standards and interoperability for the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. Fridsma is the keynote speaker for the annual summit, which takes place in Baltimore.

“We will be broadcasting seven programs, including our long-run Monitor Monday and our popular Talk-Ten-Tuesday programs, from the venue,” said Chuck Buck, publisher and executive producer for both programs. “What makes this event so dynamic is the fact that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Monday (April 9) posted a proposed ruling to extend the ICD-10 compliance deadline from October 2013 to October 2014, and that is expected to generate considerable buzz.”

Buck said that two weeks ago, while broadcasting live from the AAPC annual conference in Las Vegas, there was a great deal of speculation going on as to when HHS might make its announcement about a new deadline. Now the suspense has been lifted.

“Even though this is a proposed rule with a 30-day comment period, there is still the possibility that HHS would hold to its original compliance date,” Buck added. “We will have a number of industry experts weigh in on this crucially important subject since it affects providers, payers and clearinghouses.”
