ICD-10 is Coming This October

Physicians:
Know How This Affects You and How Children’s Can Help

In an effort to improve how illnesses and injuries can be tracked, the ICD-9 codes used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 codes.

According to the American Medical Association, the transition to ICD-10 will enable healthcare professionals to be more accurate in the documentation of medical conditions and inpatient procedures.
