Christiana Care Health SysytemICD-10

September 10, 2015

Ten to 10

Week 3

Many of the data files that Christiana Care generates and submits for registries and Value-Based Purchasing will be impacted by ICD-10.

What do I need to know? 

  • Generating and submitting these data files allows Christiana Care to participate in activities such as pay for performance initiatives and clinical research as well as to meet compliance requirements.
  • Performance Improvement generates and submits many of these files; however, some are owned by individual clinical areas.
  • A multi-disciplinary group meets weekly to discuss the remediation and testing of these data files as it relates to ICD-10

What do I need to do?

  • If you are not confident that a remediation plan is in place for your registry and the registry contains ICD-9 or ICD-10 diagnosis or procedure codes,  contact the ICD-10 Help Line to confirm it is being addressed.
