An implementation plan without contingency planning is most likely an incomplete plan, according to Joseph C. Nichols, MD.

Nichols, in a soon-to-be-released white paper, writes that contingency planning must “be an integral part of the implementation plan in order for it to reduce the risk of failure.”

Expressing deep concern about such failure potentially affecting the healthcare industry, Nichols cites the transition to ICD-10 as “one of the greatest changes to healthcare information and data management in decades.”
