The International Statistical Classification of Disease and Related Health Problems, ICD- 10, is a medical classification system for coding of:

  • Diseases
  • Injuries
  • Symptoms
  • Procedures and more

This is the first major change in U.S. coding in more than 30 years.
Some call it healthcare’s version of Y2K.
ICD-10 expands diagnosis code selections to 68,000+, compared to 14,000 ICD-9-CM selections.
