What is ICD-10?

ICD-10 is a diagnostic coding system implemented by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1993 to replace ICD-9, which was developed by WHO in the 1970s. ICD-10 allows for greater specificity and detail in describing a patient’s diagnosis and in classifying inpatient procedures, so reimbursement can better reflect the intensity of the patient's condition and diagnostic needs.

How is your Home Health Agency using ICD-10?

ICD-10 implementation changed the way coding was done and will require a significant effort to implement.

Administrators

ICD-10 impacts every aspect of your agency's operations. The more complex codes require more time and resources to properly code. With the proper training, you will be able to assess your current processes, identify challenges and develop solutions.

Coders

The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 required coders to learn a whole new coding language, with 7-digit alphanumeric replacing 5-digit numbers. On top of that, there are more than five times the amount of codes in ICD-9.

Clinicians

ICD-10 allows for greater specificity and detailed clinical documentation. With the detail that
ICD-10 affords, clinicians need to be prepared to code accurately to ensure their patients
receive proper care.
