What Is An ICD-10 Code?
Table of Contents
ICD (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health problems) is now on its 10th revision. ICD-10 codes are the byproduct of that revision. This medical classification list is generated by the World Health Organization (WHO), and is used to help healthcare providers identify and code health conditions.
The periodic revisions of ICD-9-CM mirror changes in the medical and health care field. The U.S. has been using ICD-9-CM since 1979, and it is not sufficiently robust to serve the health care needs of the future. The content is no longer clinically accurate and has limited data about patients’ medical conditions and hospital inpatient procedures, the number of available codes is limited, and the coding structure is too restrictive. The U.S. cannot directly compare morbidity diagnosis data to state and national mortality data, because mortality data have already transitioned to ICD-10 code sets.
