Transitioning to ICD-10 CM: What is the impact for Public Health Surveillance?

Description: 

Peter Hicks, an epidemiologist from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will present an expanded version of the 2013 ISDS Pre-Conference Workshop on the ICD-9/10 CM Transition and the impact upon Public Health. His presentation will include specifics on the differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes, highlighting the potential utility of the more granular ICD-10 codes. In addition, the presentation will describe some of the challenges involved in the transition, including questions about what to do with historical data comparisons and what tools are available to provide mappings from ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes.

Finally, Mr. Hicks will describe CDC's, CSTE's,  and ISDS's project that focuses on formalizing collaborations through ISDS to address the code-mapping process for syndromic surveillance and establish formal mechanisms for stakeholder feedback.
