Community Profile

ICD-10-CM/PCS Transition

ICD-10-CM/PCS -- This is a community to support the transition for public health.

Website: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/icd/icd10cm_pcs.htm
Members: 31
Latest Activity: Aug 27

The effects of the new ICD-10-CM/PCS codes are anticipated to be multifaceted with deep impacts on systems, processes, and people.

 

Systems

There are multiple changes with the coding structures.
 

Processes

Public health business processes will require modifications.

 

People

Primary users will need to assign diagnosis and/or procedure codes and will need thorough training in one or both of the ICD-10-CM/PCS code sets.
Secondary users will need to learn the new codes that apply to your data.

 

Training will be vital to a smooth transition.

 

The goal of this community is to sustain understanding of the impact ICD-10 will have on the public health community and learn from each other along the way.

The video below highlights electronic records and the move to automated systems as noted back in the 60's. 50+ years on this project!

The House of Representatives passed HR 4302 yesterday, bringing another ICD-10 delay closer to reality. HR 4302 focuses on patching the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) for physician Medicare payments but a line was inserted in the bill that would prohibit CMS from implementing ICD-10 prior to October 1, 2015.  The Senate is expected to vote on the bill today or Monday.
