The Minnesota Medical Group Management Association actively participates on Minnesota’s ICD-10 Collaborative. The one year extension of the implementation date to October 2014 allows for additional time in understanding, assessing and planning the impact of ICD-10 and the changes we will need to make. MMGMA would like to share with our members an opportunity for a free webinar put on by the ICD-10 Collaborative. The Collaborative will present a 90-minute free webinar on the business challenges of ICD-10 and the importance of continuing to plan for implementation. This Webinar will be held on Tuesday, October 9th from 9:30 -11:00 a.m. CST. For additional information and to register for this event, follow this link: http://bit.ly/Qunbyx
