Mapping the Way to ICD-10 Readiness

Excerpt from presentation by Dennis Winkler, ICD-10 technical program director at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan:

"ICD-10 lends itself to collaboration. It's a government mandate; it affects everyone that touches ICD-10 and there's a lot of risk in the system for everyone. There's no competitive advantage associated with ICD-10... We could have the best ICD-10 solution in the world, but it's not going to provide additional sales or capabilities."
