App Review - ICD10Doc - Diagnosis, Procedures and Billing codes




For all of you who don’t know, US healthcare transitions to ICD-10 last month. The ICD-10 has different clinical modification systems. The US ICD-10 Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM), for instance, has some 68,000 codes. The US also has the ICD-10 Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-PCS), a coding system that contains 76,000 codes not used by other countries.
So in order to find the correct ICD-10 codes for the patients’ diagnosis you will need an app or a website that already have indexed all of the codes and that has great search function. One of the best services you can find online is certainly ICD10Doc.
The iOS app helps with finding the correct code - diagnosis or procedure – in many vocabularies, terminologies and coding systems in addition to the (old) ICD 9 and the new ICD-10. But the most important - CPT - which determines how much will be eventually paid.
The app and website also have all coding systems: DRG - for hospitals only. APC and OPPS for outpatient facilities. Anesthesia - completely different arrangement, Dental, Office visits, then all the quality measurement systems - PQRS, HAC. Also it will enable you to determine which codes are allowed and under which circumstances and several other features.
The app has quickly gained lots of positive reviews and is the best rated ICD-10 app on the App Store. That is probably because the search function in the app is one of the best you will find in an ICD10 app. The app precisely narrows the search down to exactly what it should be according to your search terms. That makes it a great tool to have it on your iOS device. Get the app for free on the App Store or visit the website.
