The Chicago-based American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) plans to sign a contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide the Wash.-based organization with ICD-10 implementation assessment and training consultation services.

According to AHIMA, the contract requires the organization to determine ICD-10's impact on CMS; develop ICD-10 integrated project and implementation plans for the payer; conduct training needs assessment and provide CMS with coding expertise and assistance.

There are three subcontractors working with AHIMA on this project; Symphony Corp. (Madison, Wis.) will provide data collection team leaders and IT consultants; Vangent Inc. (Arlington, Va.) will handle business process analysts and data monitoring; and The RAND Corp. (Santa Monica, Calif.) will be responsible for cost estimates.
