The Department of Health and Human Services mandated that all Health InsurancePortability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) covered entities implement The International Classification of Diseases tenth edition (ICD-10) on October 1, 2015. The United States was the last industrialized country to move to the new coding system. A survey of HIM professionals was conducted across the United States to determine what efforts they experienced during the implementation of ICD-10; outline a timeline of implementation efforts for the transition of ICD-9 to ICD-10; uncover the major expenses organizations incurred through the implantation process; define training initiatives; and disclose the financial impact the transition caused. The response rate for this survey was low; however, the data collected yielded evidence that many organizations experienced similar implementation efforts regardless of the size or type of facility.
