Date:4/11/2012

GREEN BAY, Wis., April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IOD Incorporated™, a leading provider of integrated HIM solutions to hospitals, health systems, and physician practices, today announced its response to the Health and Human Services (HHS) announcement of a proposed rule to delay ICD-10 from October 1, 2013 to October 1, 2014.
