Analyst lifts HealthStream target on ICD-10 news

Northland Capital analyst Scott Berg has upgraded his rating of HealthStream shares following the decision by the Department of Health and Human Services to nail down the Oct. 1, 2015, date for providers to transition to the new ICD-10 coding system. Berg now sees HealthStream (Ticker: HSTM) climbing to $33 instead of $30 and says the HHS move "could also yield an additional $5M - $10M in ICD-10 related revenues from this short time delay. We believe this additional revenue can drive upside to current Street estimates."
