Hospital threatens to cut off EHR access to docs not trained in ICD-10

West Virginia's Charleston Area Medical Center warned its providers that those who fail to undergo ICD-10 training by July 27 would be cut off from the hospitals' electronic health record system, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail. As of July 22, only 25 of the more than 1,200 providers affiliated with the medical center had yet to complete the training.

The medical center is in the process of transitioning from Siemens' Health Services' software to Cerner, which will be completed in July 2016. Article
