The conversion from ICD-9 to ICD-10 on October 1, 2013 will have far greater impact than the original adoption of the ICD-8 and later ICD-9 systems. Even though providers, institutions and payers have been using various coding systems for many years, the quantity of codes contained in the ICD-10 system and the complexity of the coding system will make the transition far more difficult. Even though the implementation is several years off, it’s not too soon to begin planning for the training, implementation and conversion process.
Introduction to the ICD-10 Coding System is designed to teach you everything you need to know about the coding system, how it is different than the ICD-9 system, and what you need to do to successfully make the conversion.
