Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
Health care providers, hospitals and health insurance companies currently use the ICD-9-CM diagnosis coding system to define accidents, injuries, illnesses, signs, symptoms and ill-defined conditions to justify medical procedures and services. The use of these codes is mandated by HIPAA regulations for all private, public and government healthcare entities.
On October 1, 2015, the healthcare industry will convert from the ICD-9-CM coding system to the ICD-10 system for reporting diagnosis. The ICD-10 system has about 10 times more codes than the current system and is far more complex, requiring the modification of all coding software and extensive training of both professional and coding staff.
Government agencies and military installations are required to use the same diagnosis coding systems as private healthcare entities. Access to these coding systems and training programs often involves complicated bidding processes and higher costs to government agencies and military entities.
