Vendors: Are You Really Ready? Really?

By

Rumors were circulating about the exhibit floor and in meeting rooms yesterday that there would a meeting today with the practice management vendors to assess their readiness. A recurring complaint heard often during our Talk-Ten-Tuesday broadcasts comes from providers who report that ICD-10 vendors will not ready in time with their system upgrades to conduct appropriate testing before I-10 kicks in on October 1, 2014. So it comes as no surprise to learn that there will, in fact, be a meeting sometime today with—you guessed it—practice management software vendors. What makes this meeting even more significant is that CMS’ Denesecia Green has been invited to attend.
