ICD-10-CM for Hospitals Expert has all of the features and
benefits of other Hospital ICD-10-CMs on the market, including:
- COLOR CODED SYMBOLS FOR
AGE AND SEX EDITS. Easily
identify those codes that can only be used for a specific gender or age group.
- NEW REVISED CODES AND
SYMBOLS, AND NEW AND DELETED TEXT INDICATORS. Not only are all of the new and revised codes
presented with symbols to mark them, but we have also underlined all new text
and stricken through any deleted text to give the coder additional insight into
the code changes.
- ADDITIONAL DIGIT
REQUIRED FLAGS IN BOTH TABULAR AND ABC INDEXES. Alerts the coder to the need for a more specific
code for proper claims submission. Reminds the user not to use the ABC Index
for coding by prompting them to view the additional digits in the Tabular list.
PRINCIPAL," "QUESTIONABLE ADMISSION," AND
"MANIFESTATION" DIAGNOSIS CODE FLAGS. Alerts the coder to codes that may not be
considered acceptable for use as a payable admitting diagnosis code, and when a
code should be reported secondary to a primary diagnosis.
- ANATOMICAL ILLUSTRATIONS
AT THE CODE-LEVEL. Increases
understanding of the anatomy or other elements needed to make appropriate code
- HOSPITAL ACQUIRED
CONDITION (HAC) FLAGS. Medicare has begun to not reimburse hospitals for treatment of
conditions that were not present at the initial hos[ital admission (POA) of the
patient. This indicator shows those diagnosis codes that are subject to HAC POA
- COMPLICATION AND
COMORBIDITY (CC) AND MAJOR CC (MCC) EDITS. The presence of CCs or MCCs in addition to the
principal diagnosis is an important factor in correct DRG assignment under the
new MS-DRG system. Diagnoses considered CCs or MCCs are indicated at the code
- "VALID OR,"
"NON-OR," AND MEDICARE COVERAGE PROCEDURE CODE FLAGS. One important factor in correct DRG assignment
is whether or not the procedure was performed in the operating room (OR). These
indicators highlight procedures that are generally expected to be performed in
the OR or specifically not in the OR. Additionally, Medicare non-covered and
limited coverage procedures are flagged.
- RUNNING PAGE HEADERS AND
BLEED TABS. Easy term/code reference
in the ABC and Tabular Lists, respectively. Tabular List bleed tabs are colored
for even easier flipping between sections.
