|Project Title||Building Internal Processes and Planning Validation Activities Related to Use of ICD-10-CM Codes in the Sentinel Initiative|
Thursday, June 21, 2018
The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) formally set October 1, 2015 as the compliance date for conversion from the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) to ICD-10 diagnostic (ICD-10-CM) and procedure (ICD-10-PCS) codes. All healthcare providers covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPPA) were affected by this requirement. Thus, all diagnostic and procedure codes reported by Sentinel Data Partners on or after October 1, 2015 are expected to be in ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS formats since commercial carriers follow federal regulations for operational efficiency.
This workgroup tested existing infrastructure and internal processes to help ensure a smooth transition from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM/PCS codes.
