Course Summary

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) have worked diligently to revise and update the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) in order to provide United States based medical professionals with a comprehensive and consistent classification system for diagnoses. All health care providers covered under the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA), including Medicare and Medicaid, in order to standardize diagnoses for medical and billing purposes, will use these classifications. The goals of these changes include improving effectiveness of patient care, safety, and health outcomes, and an improved medical coding and billing system for all health practices and organizations using ICD-10.
