ICD-10 National Pilot Program

The ICD-10 National Pilot Program, an industry-wide healthcare collaborative effort co-led by HIMSS and WEDI, was established in 2013 to develop a standard set of testing scenarios for the healthcare community and to identify an "asynchronous" testing model for small and large organizations who must test for ICD-10. The goal is for you to begin testing early and remediate your systems well in advance of the compliance date.
