The ICD-9 to ICD-10 Crosswalk made Easy
On October 1, 2014 ICD-9 codes will be obsolete, and will be replaced by ICD-10 codes. It is crucial that healthcare organizations train and prepare for the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 in advance of the 2014 deadline to avoid costly delays or penalties. The conversion from ICD-9 to ICD-10 adds increased specificity to clinical diagnoses, thus creating a multitude of new codes to learn and implement. To aid the ICD-10 transition, we have created an ICD-10 mapping tool which will allow you to translate ICD-9 codes into ICD-10 codes and vice versa. Our ICD-9 to ICD-10 crosswalk is meant to prepare healthcare organizations for the impending change, and allow practitioners to train and learn the new diagnosis coding system prior to the implementation of ICD-10.
