Although many got a laugh (or were completely confused) by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s infamous convoluted answer to a question, it seems it was prophetic of where we are on the road to ICD-10.
“There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know,” Rumsfeld said. “But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don’t know we don’t know. And … it is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones.”
