Shrewsbury, NJ (PRWEB) December 09, 2011

ICD10monitor.com is hosting a groundbreaking live roundtable discussion with a panel of experts selected to analyze a recent decision by the American Medical Association (AMA) to make a bid to halt implementation of the ICD-10 coding system, according to website Publisher Chuck Buck.

Registration is going on now for the 90-minute roundtable, titled âœAt the Crossroads: AMAâs Impact on ICD-10.â The event, which is slated to feature a live Q&A with the expert panel, is scheduled to be held 10:30 a.m.-noon EST on Tuesday, Dec. 13. Visit: http://shop.icd10monitor.com/product_p/web12132011.htm for more information.

The AMAâs House of Delegates voted at its Nov. 15 semi-annual meeting to âœvigorouslyâ work to stop the implementation of ICD-10. Roundtable panelists will discuss the implications of this decision and its potential impact on the federal governmentâs mandated transition to ICD-10 by October 2013.

Moderating the roundtable will be Buck and MedLearn Vice President of Consulting Kim Charland (BA, RHIT, CCS). Panelists confirmed to appear include Cleveland Clinic Health System Executive Director of Revenue Cycle Management Lyman Sornberger, Kloss Strategic Advisors President and former AHIMA Chief Executive Officer Linda Kloss, IASIS Healthcare Director of Health Information Management Kyle McElroy, Health Care Mediation Co-founder David Block and WellPoint Vice President of ICD-10 Federal Mandates Ian Bonnet.

âœWe are very pleased to have such outstanding authorities speak on the subject of ICD-10, particularly since they represent both the payer and provider communities,â Buck said. âœWe have sent repeated requests to AMA to have a representative on the panel, and so far, no response. And inquiries were made to both state associations of the AMA â” Mississippi and Alabama â” including a request to the American Urological Association. All three entities were reported to have initiated the resolution during the AMA’s semi-annual meeting. The lack of response from these organizations, unfortunately, is disappointing.”

The registration fee for the roundtable is $99, with the anticipated audience including healthcare executives, HIM directors, quality assurance directors and those involved in compliance and revenue cycle operations for hospitals nationwide.

We will be soliciting questions from the audience during the 90-minute live event,â Buck said. âœWe want to have an open forum and we encourage people to share their thoughts â” either in agreement or disagreement â” with the recent action taken by the AMA.â
