Video Demonstration of End-to-End ICD-10 Testing

I’ve heard a lot of people suggest that an organization needed to do end-to-end ICD-10 testing in order to prepare for the switchover to ICD-10 on October 1, 2015 (we think). I came across this video demonstration of Qualitest doing an end-to-end test of ICD-10:
