As an integrated healthcare system, Kaiser Permanente is in a unique position when it comes to testing ICD-10. In order to become ICD-10-compliant, the company must test from the position of both a provider (caregiver) and a payer (insurance plan).

During the coming months, Kaiser Permanente is targeting to test nearly 200 remediated applications individually and internally, collectively with our external trading partners (e.g. clearinghouses, government agencies, vendors, etc.), and also with our external providers.

In order for ICD-10 implementation to proceed smoothly, each type of entity in the healthcare industry must be prepared. One of the goals of testing with our external partners is to understand how their state of readiness will impact us.
