ICD-10-CM/PCS: PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 09 September 2010 11:25
ICD-10-CM/PCS:
➤ Integrates extensive specificity and clinical data, which results in:
  • Enhanced sensitivity when refining grouping and reimbursement methodologies;
  • Minimum need to include supporting documentation with claims;
  • Improved ability to measure health care services; and
  • Increased ability to conduct public health surveillance.
➤ Includes updated medical terminology and classification of diseases;
➤ Provides more effective information for:
  • Making clinical decisions;
  • Processing claims;
  • Designing payment systems;
  • Measuring care rendered to patients;
  • Tracking public health;
  • Identifying hoax and misuse; and
  • Conducting research.
➤Provides codes to allow comparison of mortality and morbidity information; and below are examples that show where ICD-10-CM/PCS codes are more precise and provide better information.
