It’s that time of year again— turkey, cranberries, and RSNA in Chicago. My first RSNA was in 1988, and I’d only been working in the medical equipment business for a few months when I was sent to the show as a "warm body” to help out in my company’s booth.

Physicians, practice managers, clinics, and hospitals are counting down to October 1, 2015, the day that new health care coding requirements go into effect. The new catalog of codes, from the 10th revision of the International Classification of Diseases – or ICD-10, for short – will include 80,000 diagnostic codes, up from the 14,000 codes that are currently used. Originally scheduled for use beginning October 2013, the Obama Administration delayed ICD-10 until October 2014, and then Congress kindly gave healthcare providers another year, until October 2015. That date, dreaded by large hospitals and single-physician facilities alike, is now upon us.
