AHA surveying hospitals about transition to ICD-10, EHR meaningful use

May 2, 2013

The AHA is surveying community hospital CEOs through May 17 to learn how best to help and advocate for members as they transition to the ICD-10 coding system for patient diagnoses and procedures, and to meaningful use of electronic health records. Details on the ICD-10 and Meaningful Use Readiness Survey were emailed yesterday to CEOs at all community hospitals. Individual data from the survey will not be released publicly, but will be shared with state hospital associations to assist in joint readiness efforts. For more information, contact AHA’s George Arges at (312) 422-3398 or garges@aha.org.
