The Twittersphere was on fire today during the hearing held by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce’s Subcommittee on Health.
Tweets included the now-standard ICD-10 hash tags of #ICD10, #ICD10Matters, #NoDelay, and a new one, #SubHealth. Every day brings more thought leadership to the platform as the passion for ICD-10 comes to new forms of media. From strong support, interesting facts, and even humorous memes, hundreds of users of social media are letting their voices be heard. The American Health Information Management Association’s (AHIMA’s) popular #ICD10Matters campaign, which asks people to tag their senators and House representatives in online posts, has actually made a strong grassroots impact that was clearly evident today.
