In Your Experience, Which are the Most Challenging Sets of ICD-10 Codes?

Let us know your thoughts and also see what other HIM professionals are saying!

Since the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Edition (ICD-10) was implemented on Oct. 1, 2015, the classification options of health conditions have been significantly expanded. Whereas ICD-9-CM had around 13,000 three-to-five-digit, chiefly numeric diagnostic codes, ICD-10-CM has around 69,000 three-to-seven-digit, alphanumeric codes.

According to The American Health Information Management Association, "The new code sets incorporate greater specificity and clinical detail resulting in major improvements in the quality and usefulness of coded data. Furthermore, medical terminology and the classification of diseases have been updated to be consistent with current clinical practice."

With such a large increase in codes, ADVANCE wants to know which ICD-10 code sets HIM professionals find the most challenging. Share your thoughts below.
