The effects of the new ICD-10-CM/PCS codes are anticipated to be multifaceted with deep impacts on systems, processes, and people.
There are multiple changes with the coding structures.
Public health business processes will require modifications.
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.
