Welcome to the Wisconsin ICD-10 Partnership


WICD-1O is Wisconsin's ICD-10 Partnership founded in 2011. Our goals:
  • Bring together stakeholders from provider, payer and vendor organizations to collaborate in the planning and implementation of the ICD-10 coding nomenclature;
  • Share tools and other resources for senior managers, physicians and technical staff across organizations to promote successful ICD-10 implementation and post-implementation.
We believe ICD-10 is an opportunity to improve processes, technology, reimbursement methods and ultimately patient care.
