A study by the Medical Group Management Association highlighted doctors' concerns regarding the ICD-10 transition effective next year. The study, which involved about 1,200 medical groups representing more than 55,000 physicians, found that doctors' greatest concern about meeting the ICD-10 compliance deadline is the absence of coordination and communication of practices with partners such as EHR vendors. Absorbing transition costs and changes in clinical documentation were also among the concerns cited by practices.
