MEDICAL CODING (ICD-10)

The International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Edition (ICD-10) is a clinical cataloguing system that went into effect for the U.S. healthcare industry on Oct.1, 2015.ICD-10 codes provide more detailed information for measuring healthcare service quality, safety and efficacy. Because better data will be provided via the ICD-10 code set, it has the potential to improve the following:

  • Value-based reimbursement
  • Outcome measurements
  • Clinical, financial and administrative performance measurement
  • The design of payment systems and claims processing
  • Reporting on new medical technology
  • Improving reimbursement systems
  • Care and disease process management

The adoption of the ICD-10 code set also allows for more accurate payment for new procedures, fewer rejected claims, fewer fraudulent claims, a better understanding of new procedures and improved disease management.
