The ICD-10-PCS classification system is a whole new way of coding procedures. Compared to ICD-9-CM procedure coding, it entails more specificity, uses different organizational principles, and uses a different classification system based on essential components of a procedure.
Are you ready? Do you know the key anatomical terms you will use? Do you know the goal of the procedure? Do you know how the umbrella ICD-9-CM procedure codes translate to codes in ICD-10-PCS?
Focus your preparation for ICD-10-PCS on the codes you use most. By mapping the most frequently used ICD-9-CM Volume 3 procedure codes to their corresponding ICD-10-PCS codes, you can identify the essential components of the procedures, identify your specific documentation needs, evaluate your training needs, and refine your implementation plan.
Start your preparations for the new coding system with this low-cost, easy-to-use tool.
