ICD-10 Issue Reporting and Resolution ICD-10 Implementation Success Initiative To help your ICD-10 implementation efforts, the American Association of Professional Coders (AAPC), the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI), and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have developed an ICD-10 Implementation Success Initiative. To Find and Report Issues: This initiative is comprised of a searchable public database of ICD-10 issues for submission, help prioritizing those issues, and a series of educational webinars and articles available as a resource to highlight prominent ICD-10 conversion issues and trends. The searchable database is easy to use. Once you submit your issue, it is reviewed, and once approved, it is made available online. If you provide your name and contact information, WEDI will also follow up with you directly. Understanding how the new codes and coding standards impact diagnosis and inpatient procedures is imperative to the transition to ICD-10. We encourage you to use this resource for your organization!
