ICD-10 and Administrative Simplification

AHA Provides Resources for ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Coding Systems

ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS are the HIPAA code set standards for hospital reporting of diagnosis and procedures. These coding systems serve an important function for hospital payments, quality reviews, benchmarking measurement and the collection of general medical statistical data.

The AHA's Central Office on ICD-10 provides coding assistance and education through its clearinghouse service and the AHA Coding Clinic for ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS . The resources offered are a formal cooperative effort with the American Health Information Management Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Center for Health Statistics and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
