10 Weeks of IPPSpalooza

IPPSpalooza is coming up, it's the biggest time of the year for ICD10monitor. It's the 10-week period that starts when the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) final rule is released and continues through October 1st – when the regulations, including the ICD-10 codes, are effective. Talk Ten Tuesdays and the ICD10monitor editorial board will be focusing on relevant information leading up to the release of the new ICD-10 codes and will provide not only the news but in-depth analyses of all IPPS related regulations — all with the goal of helping organizations prepare for a smooth implementation.
