Please be aware that normally our Webinars are on the third Wednesday of every month, but this talk will be on Thursday. Please mark your calendars accordingly.
The presentation mirrors the order and structure of a paper submitted to JAMIA titled, “Leveraging the NLM Map from SNOMED CT to ICD-10-CM to Facilitate Adoption of ICD-10-CM.” The presentation provides a “crash course” in ICD while demonstrating an approach to acquire ICD-10-CM codes through web services to facilitate any medical application’s transition to ICD-10.
The objectives of the talk are:
– To provide brief background information on ICD with a focus on ICD-9 and ICD-10
– To discuss the approach, reasoning and implementation process for the creation of the ICD-10-CM web services
– To review use case examples, service output and statistics demonstrating the services’ ability to perform
– To discuss the areas in which further data analysis is required to improve ICD-10 meta data to enhance user experience
