Physician practices are pushing back ICD-10 preparations, with only 25 percent of surveyed doctors saying their practice will have started the transition work by year’s end.
Medical Practice Insider and QuantiaMD joined forces to survey 201 members of QuantiaMD’s online physician community during the last two weeks and found that 75 percent of respondents are sitting tight, at least for now.
