ICD-10-CM Implementation

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is a common framework and languages to report, compile, use and compare health information. In 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO) took responsibility for ICD with the sixth revision. WHO updates the ICD periodically to reflect current epidemiology and medical understanding of disease (i.e., ICD-7 through 10).

As of October 1, 2015 the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) will be required for all Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) covered entities. In addition to the ICD 10 codes revision, a new functionality for progress notes has been designed and will be implemented on October 1, 2015. It's called Diagnosis at Service or DAS, which requires anyone claiming for a service to select the diagnoses that are the focus of each service.

The County of San Diego has provided the following resources and documents for the implementation of ICD-10-CM and Diagnosis at Service:
