The Edifecs ICD-10 Code Management software is part of Edifecs ICD-10 solution, which also includes analytics, test management and code translation products. These may be used as an integrated suite for an end-to-end ICD-10 migration solution or deployed independently.
The Federal ICD-10 mandate deadline is October 1, 2013, and the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 code sets will be one of the most extensive conversion projects that healthcare organizations will undertake.
