World Health Organization’s ICD-10 and Current Compliance Efforts

  1. 1.  Responsible for diverse business process outsourcing initiatives, Ashok Bagdy holds executive responsibilities with Cameo Corporate Services, Ltd. Ashok Bagdy has extensive experience in medical coding related to major events, including the U.S. government's forthcoming October 2015 deadline for compliance with ICD-10, which is required of health- care providers through the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA). Formulated by the World Health Organization (WHO), ICD stands for International Classification of Diseases and is used to ensure standardization in the recording of health problems and deaths.
  2. 2.  It enables diagnostic data utilized in epidemiological and clinical settings to be efficiently stored and retrieved. Standardization also provides a vital way for the WHO to generate reliable morbidity and mortality statistics for member countries. ICD-10 was first endorsed at the 1990 World Health Assembly and came into effect four years later. Vital guidance related U.S. medical institutions’ transition to ICD-10 is provided at www.cms.gov. Medscape Education additionally provides resources in the form of learning modules that facilitate compliance.
