The U.S. transition to International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision (ICD-10-CM/PCS) on October 1, 2014 will have significant impact on public health entities. CDC’s ICD-10 Transition Workgroup is offering a training session that will provide an overview of the transition and an introduction to the new code sets. Specifically, the presentation will describe why the U.S. is transitioning to ICD-10 code sets, who is affected by the transition, what CDC is doing around the transition, key differences between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 code sets, and what some of the implementation issues will be for public health entities.
- Attendees will be able to describe the transition’s impact to public health epidemiology, surveillance and statistical activities.
- Attendees will understand the key differences between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM/PCS code sets.
- Attendees will be able to identify possible implementation issues for the transition.
- Attendees will understand how to leverage publically available tools and resources to assist their own transition activities.
