There is a lot of buzz out in the industry about ICD-11, especially since the World Health Organization (WHO) released the new code set in June as first reported by ICD10monitor and Talk Ten Tuesday. Nevertheless, ICD-11 is a trending topic—a topic we will explore during this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays.
