On Oct. 1, 2014, medical coding in U.S. health care settings will change from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS. The transition will require a greater level of specificity in physician documentation, more accurate code selection, and business systems changes throughout the entire health care industry.
UTHealth has a plan of action in place to prepare our employees for this very important transition. You will be receiving more information in the very near future about ICD-10 training courses and what you can do to get ready for this change.
For more information please see our ICD-10 Intranet page: https://med.uth.edu/utpintranet/icd-10/
