An improved classification of diseases in the diagnostic and the procedure codes is crucial for providing high-quality and effective patient care. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed that all healthcare organizations replace the current ICD-9-Clinical Modification codes with the ICD 10 codes. The transition to ICD 10 involves multiple challenges, such as substantial investments in ICD business and IT remediation, the development of more-effective models for deriving useful insights from ICD 10 data, an overhaul of existing systems to fit ICD 10 codes, and disruptions in important functional areas such as finance, claims and medical management, and benefits.
