October 1, 2015 is the official transition date for the ICD-10 coding system. This system, published by the World Health Organization, replaces ICD-9, which has been in place for more than forty years. ICD-10 will enhance the healthcare system by enabling physicians to better capture patient visit details and more specifically identify patient problems including their degree and cause. This will ultimately lead to better care coordination and health outcomes. This transition is necessary due to the limited data about patients’ medical conditions and hospital inpatient procedures that ICD-9 provides, making specificity of clinical documentation difficult.Download our Free ICD-10 Planning Whitepaper
