Subject: [IMPROVEDX] Blog posting on ICD-10 and Diagnosis

Dr Yul Ejnes (an internist and  past chair of ACP's Board of Regents) has an interesting  blog post<http://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2015/10/icd-10-isnt-just-the-problem-its-also-the-symptom.html> on the new ICD-10 coding system.  Echoing the same point made in the IOM report Improving Diagnosis in Health Care, he labels ICD-10 an "absurdly complicated payment 'non-system'" and calls for "alternatives that make getting the diagnosis right more important than selecting the correct code."
