Many Players, Many Roles

Since different disciplines require different types and degrees of awareness, we've organized appropriate levels of communication and informational needs according to several different categories. Your category may determine the kind and degree of training you will receive. ICD-10 Training will be conducted in multiple phases, training for different audiences will continually be rolled out. Your director/manager will alert you to your training requirements and timing. The actual training will be assigned through the Tree.

If you do not see your Department listed in the chart below, please know training information will be provided to you through your Department Leadership.

Because ICD-10 requirements affect clinical specialties differently, training will be specialty-specific. During the first quarter of 2014, Memorial will begin to offer this specialized training for physicians and clinical staff in preparation for a "soft go-live" scheduled to begin in April of 2014. This "soft go-live" is a "dress rehearsal" of sorts, using EPIC, that will give us the opportunity to document using ICD-10 terminology prior to the "hard go live" or compliance date of October 1, 2015. During the period from April through October 2015, we will simultaneously monitor usage of the ICD-10 terminology, providing feedback, and facilitating any additional training deemed necessary.

Those staff who are not physicians or clinicians will receive training targeted to their functional areas/roles in the Spring and Summer of 2014, prior to the actual compliance date of October 1, 2015.

Review the chart below to identify your category.
