Preparing for the January 1, 2012 Version 5010 Deadline

The compliance deadline for the transition to Version 5010 is only two weeks away! Though the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced an enforcement discretionary period of 90 days for Version 5010 compliance, the deadline remains January 1, 2012. Enforcement will not be exercised until April 1, 2012; however, it is important that organizations continue to complete the transition to Version 5010 as soon as possible, if they have not done so already.
