ICD-10 FastTrack

Why is ICD-10 Training Important? Healthcare facilities and physicians’ offices must transition from the ICD-9 code set to the new ICD-10 codes on October 1, 2014. This is a monumental undertaking, especially for medical coders, because it will:

Significantly expand the number of codes used: The current ICD-9 code set includes about 17,000 codes whereas the ICD-10 code set has over 155,000 codes. These new codes are more specific and more complex, requiring coders to have specialized training to effectively use them.

Increase the importance of biomedical sciences: With the shift to more complex codes, an understanding of the biomedical sciences—medical terminology, anatomy, pathophysiology, and pharmacology—will be even more important for medical coders.

Medical coders who want to stay current and successful in the industry must have ICD-10 specific training—and AHIMA and AAPC recommend that coders have both biomedical sciences and code set training.
