Salt Lake City, Utah-based 3M Health Information Systems, a ICD-9 and ICD-10 coding and clinical terminology management provider, has released the 3M ICD-10 Code Translation Tool, now fully integrated with 3M’s medical vocabulary server, the 3M Healthcare Data Dictionary, to provide a single source solution for translating and converting ICD-9 based applications to ICD-10. Building on 3M’s real-world operational experience in terminologies and standards implementation, and nearly two decades of developing and implementing ICD-10 products and services around the world, the new integrated solution helps U.S. hospitals, physician practices, payers and government agencies successfully transition to ICD-10.

The combined power of the two applications makes it possible to create and store customized ICD-9 and ICD-10 mappings, and leverages the industry-standard vocabularies of the 3M Healthcare Data Dictionary to provide coded, computable data that people can understand and software applications can use and process in real-time.

The 3M ICD-10 Code Translation Tool helps convert ICD-9 based applications to ICD-10. Offering easy-to-use menu-driven features that simplify the translation process, the software can be used to convert existing information systems and software applications to ICD-10, or to create customized mappings for specific clinical and business needs.
