ICD-10-CM/PCS Project Management Resources

Organizations looking to begin the transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS can find project management resources in the October practice brief “Transitioning ICD-10-CM/PCS Data Management Processes.” Web-only resources include:

  • Sample project communication plan
  • Sample project plan
  • Sample project progress report
  • Sample issues log

The online version also includes a list of communication aids that organizations may use in the transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS and a contact form for the major stakeholders leading the ICD-10-CM/PCS implementation.

As the practice brief notes, planning for the transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS is a multifaceted effort. Defining the organization’s data management plan will facilitate a smooth transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS and optimize its greater specificity.


  1. If the ICD-9 codes are changed for whatever reason, what becomes of us- who are presently studying ans begining to practice the coding as an entry level employee?

  2. Excellent information – enough to start out with ‘some’ direction rather than starting out slightly lost. The WBS/Project Plan could be a little bit beefier – containing real tasks or gotcha’s that other PM’s have found helpful to have as a line item. Other than that, the 4 documents you’ve attached are a great start. Thanks for posting, Marie
