CMS has released three new resources to help small physician practices prepare for ICD-10. These resources also provide Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Education (CE) credits to health care professionals who complete the learning modules, and anyone who takes them will earn a certificate of completion. If you are a first-time visitor to Medscape, you will need to create a free account to access these resources.
