2017 ICD-10-CM Expert for Hospitals
The 2017 ICD-10-CM Expert for Hospitals featuring our hallmark color-coding and symbols related to ICD-10 MS-DRG reimbursement edits makes facing the challenges of accurate diagnosis coding easier. The hospital edition contains ICD-10 MS-DRG edits with symbols for comorbidities/complications (CC), major comorbidities/complications (MCC), and principal diagnoses that function as their own CC/MCC as well as CC/MCC exclusion lists at the code level. Set the standard for coding accuracy, the cornerstone of healthcare analytics and revenue cycle management, with the confidence only an Optum360 product can deliver.
In addition, the Expert version contains supplementary appendixes including: present on admission (POA) coding and reporting tutorial; pharmacology listings of common drugs with therapeutic classes and indications; common drugs associated with Z-codes used to report long term drug use; and CC, MCC and principal diagnosis functioning as CC/MCC code lists.
