ICD-10 October 1, 2015!
The International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) is a revision of the ICD-9-CM system which physicians and other providers currently use to code all diagnoses, symptoms, and procedures recorded in hospitals and physician practices.
We’ll be co-hosting an event, along with Waterbury Hospital and Greater Waterbury Health Network, on July 30th for all our referring physicians on this important transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10. The ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets on October 1, 2015. This will be a networking event planned to discuss and share information, training and ideas regarding the implementation of ICD-10.
