I’ve asked many people why we haven’t had more stories on the benefits of ICD-10 since so many other countries have been using ICD-10 for many years.

In the following video I asked Doris Gemmell, BSc, MBA, CHIM, Director of Coding Services at Accentus Inc. about the benefits of ICD-10 to population health and she provided an answer from her ICD-10 experience in Canada.
