I’d seen some tweets and other messages on social media about the #ICD10Matters tweetup that was happening today. It was organized by AHIMA and has HIM professionals all over the country reaching out to their representatives in Congress to encourage them to not delay ICD-10 again. You can see that the Twitter stream for #ICD10Matters has been very active. I’ll be interested to know how many senators take note of all these tweets.

Along with tweets to representatives in Congress, you also have people tweeting great ICD-10 content, but they’ve also started an #ICD10Matters meme with images talking about it. Here’s a look at some of the ones I’ve found entertaining:

I’m not sure how well these images will talk to congress, but they might be able to engage the mass of HIM professionals to engage on the topic. We’ll see the power of grumpy cat in action.
