Date:9/12/2011

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Experis recognizes National Healthcare IT week, September 12 -16, and shares perspective and tips for hospital leaders faced with decisions regarding ICD-10 assessment investment prior to implementation. ICD-10 is the 10th revision to the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, which is a medical classification coding system implemented by the World Health Organization.
