NextGen Upgrade Planning

ICD-10 and Meaningful Use Stage 2 are on everyone's radar and the October 2014 deadline for adopting ICD-10 is fast approaching. All NextGen clients will need to be implementing an application upgrade to 5.8 and a KBM upgrade to 8.3 before then. These upgrades will involve major workflow changes and staff training time to accommodate the use of ICD-10. Even though these versions will not be released until later this year, it isn't too early to begin planning.
