Exclusive ICD-11 Update: Recommendations for Immediate Action

Like the inevitable approach of a slow-moving freight train, ICD-11 is on the horizon, heading this way. It’s coming.

That’s why we asked Margaret Skurka to join us for the next upcoming edition of Talk-Ten-Tuesdays: to give you an exclusive update on the new code set for America’s health system. Skurka, a member of the National Committee of Vital Health Statistics (NCVHS), participated in describing for the Honorable Xavier Becerra, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), recommendations regarding adoption of ICD-11 in the United States.
