In March I asked why we haven’t seen stories of all the benefits of ICD-10 to patients. Considering many other countries around the world have been using ICD-10 for years and years, I wondered why we hadn’t heard more stories of the benefits of ICD-10 to patients.
In the following video I asked Doris Gemmell, BSc, MBA, CHIM, Director of Coding Services at Accentus Inc. this same question and she provided a simple but thoughtful example of how ICD-10 could benefit the patient.
I’m also a big fan of Doris because she blogs about ICD-10 on her blog. I always love when smart people share their knowledge on a blog.
