Nevertheless, with the date of implementation already expired, larger facilities gain an advantage, whereas smaller practices lag behind (Conn, 2015). That is to say, ICD-10 doesn’t purposely affect health care facilities negatively. Wall (2016) further identifies the impact of ICD-10 with regards on data capturing. It is important to note that data capturing is further improved to capture undetectable data not thought possible.
