ICD-10, or the tenth revision of the International Classification of Diseases is a World Health Organization-approved designation of the aspects of disease treatment that include categories of diseases and treatment modalities for them, broken down in to more than 141,000 designations. The previous ICD had only 17,000 codes, diagnoses and procedures. The United States is among the last countries in the world to adopt these standards, but the Department of Health and Human Services has mandated that all medical practices, hospitals and other medical record keeping organization be trained and ICD-10 compliant by October 1, 2014. This is essential as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid services will also be adopting the ICD-10 standard and will require proper medical coding in order to provide reimbursement. U.S. adoption of ICD-10 will undoubtedly require a massive overhaul of the nationâ€™s medical cod-
ing system. The current ICD-9 codes are deeply imbedded as part of the coding, reporting and reimbursement analysis performed today. This will cause ICD10 to affect every aspect of a healthcare providerâ€™s organization. In fact, ICD10 implementation has the potential to overtake Y2K in terms of impact and cost. It will require a massive wave of system reviews, new medical coding or extensive updates to existing software, and changes to many system interfaces. ICD-10 implementation has the potential to be so profound that it will touch all operational systems and procedures of the core payer administration process and the provider revenue cycle. This all translates into loss of revenue or a compliance problem. The shortage of coders will be monumental as many will retire and the remaining coders will have to specialize.
