The compliance date for implementation of the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition, Clinical Modification/Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-CM/PCS) is October 1, 2014 for all covered entities. A number of other countries have already moved to ICD-10, including:

China (1992);              United Kingdon (1995);             France (1997);

Austrailia (1998);         Germany (2000);                       Canada (2001).

 

1. ICD-10 is the most comprehensive change in the U.S. healthcare system.

2. ICD-10 is a complete overhaul of the diagnosis coding system, whereas ICD-9 Diagnosis Codes had             approximately 14,000 codes and ICD-10 Diagnosis Codes has 69,000 codes

3. ICD-10 will require greater detail in medical record documentation.

4. ICD-10 is too different from ICD-9 for crosswalks and mapping.

5. ICD-10-CM will require 3-7 alpha/numeric digits

6. The coding guidelines and rules have increased in specificity for ICD-10

7. ICD-10 will require technical and clinical training preparation

8. The impact to outpatient clinics and physician practices will be felt in all areas of the practice:

     - IT system conversion and testing
     - Patient registration
     - Pre-Authorization process
     - Charge capture
     - Charge master superbill and encounter forms
     - Charge entry
     - Training of physicians and mid-level providers

9. Begin the process for developing your conversion plan.

10. Implement planning and preparation for training now.
