Health care providers across the United States have until October 2014 to prepare for a transformational change in the way a patient’s clinical details are summarized in the medical record.
ICD-10 replaces the 30-year-old ICD-9 system which has limited data about patients’ medical conditions and hospital inpatient procedures. ICD-9 uses a system of 14,300 diagnosis codes and 3,800 procedure codes. ICD-10 expands to 69,000 diagnosis codes and 72,000 procedure codes.
Munson Healthcare is partnering with Trinity Health to prepare for this transition. A core team has been working together on strategies, work plans, and time lines to ensure a successful transition to the new set of codes.
