The US Department of Health and Human Services

Postby icd 10 remediation » Wed May 16, 2012 1:32 am

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed a regulation that will replace the ICD-9-Clinical Modification code sets, now used to report healthcare diagnoses and procedures, with advanced ICD-10 code sets. This specificity will benefit patients and doctors (by giving more detailed diagnosis and treatment information), payers (by more accurately defining services) and international organizations that monitor worldwide disease.
Transitioning to ICD-10 involves an overhaul of the current coding systems, and requires substantial investments in upgrading the IT systems. As an experienced partner with end-to-end capabilities, we help you move to ICD-10 swiftly and efficiently.
Our approach is supported by proprietary processes to ensure minimal disruption during transition, while saving costs. In order to help you adopt the new coding system, we offer comprehensive consulting and Knowledge Process Outsourcing services as well. These will be challenging times, but the outcomes will ultimately be worth the effort. In addition, the experts provide customized solutions to meet your specific requirements.

Implementation of ICD-9 to ICD-10 crosswalk

Implementation of ICD-9 to ICD-10 crosswalk
Crosswalking between ICD-10 and ICD-9 should be done primarily to assist with transitioning to ICD-10 and analyze data that spans the conversion time period. To assist with transitioning, crosswalking between the code sets will assist one with identifying the differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10. If it develops the encounter forms or “superbills”, crosswalking will assist by creating new forms for ICD-10.
The ICD-9-CM system is an International Classification of Diseases (ICS), currently used in the United States, which enables providers to code specific diagnoses. It provides codes to classify diseases and a wide variety of signs, symptoms, abnormal findings, complaints, social circumstances, and external causes of injury or disease. Under this system, every health condition can be associated to a unique category and given a code, up to six characters long. Such categories can include a set of similar diseases. But according to the Department of Health and Human Services, ICD-9 no longer meets the needs of today’s health care system because of its limited ability to accommodate new procedures and diagnoses. Since 1988, the USA had required ICD-9-CM codes for Medicare and Medicaid claims, and most of the rest of the American medical industry followed suit. On January 1, 1999, the ICD-10 (without clinical extensions) was adopted for reporting mortality, but ICD-9-CM was still used for morbidity.
Keeping all of the above uses in mind, it becomes quite clear that a classification system that provides greater coding accuracy and specificity is greatly needed. So, it was a deliberate attempt to map the conversion from ICD 9 to ICD 10 to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the healthcare system by leading to cost reductions for or improvement in benefits from electronic healthcare transactions.
The tool can be used to convert data from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM. Mapping from ICD-10-CM codes back to ICD-9-CM codes is referred to as backward mapping. Mapping from ICD-9-CM codes to ICD-10-CM. The conversion tool is a comprehensive translation dictionary that can be used to accurately and effectively translate any ICD-9-CM-based data, including data for:
• Tracking quality;
• Recording morbidity/mortality;
• Calculating reimbursement; or
• Converting any ICD-9-CM-based application to ICD-10-CM.
It can be said that it is an effective tool for mapping the codes and training the staffs in new codes for further enhancement in the medical field.
