That 5010 transition is when?

I know that no one has forgotten that the Version 5010 transition is this coming week, but I thought I would repost some information from CMS for reference …

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced an enforcement discretionary period of 90 days for Version 5010 compliance, the deadline remains January 1, 2012. Enforcement will not be exercised until April 1, 2012; however, it is important that organizations continue to complete the transition to Version 5010 as soon as possible, if they have not done so already.

CMS is committed to helping organizations make a smooth transition to Version 5010 and ICD-10.

CMS has also posted a new fact sheet, which discusses steps providers should be taking now to ensure a timely transition to Version 5010 by January 1, 2012.
