The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has selected advanced ICD-10 code translation technology from 3M Health Information Systems (St. Paul, Minn.) to assist the federal agency in converting systems, applications, and reports based on ICD-9 diagnosis and procedure codes into the language of ICD-10. The 3M ICD-10 Code Translation Tool will be used to streamline the code translation process and support ICD-10 transition planning at CMS headquarters in Baltimore, Md.

CMS has also licensed the software for use by its Fiscal Intermediaries (FIs), Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and carriers to promote accurate and consistent translations from ICD-9 to ICD-10 in all of their CMS systems.

The 3M ICD-10 Code Translation Tool is a powerful web-based application designed to support code conversion of large, complex information systems and the creation of customized code mappings for specific clinical and business needs of both large health systems and standalone community hospitals. It is part of 3M’s complete solution for ICD-10 transition planning, which also includes ICD-10 financial impact analysis services, ICD-10 consulting services for clinical documentation improvement, and the 3M ICD-10 Education Program, a comprehensive web-based curriculum that prepares coders, documentation improvement specialists and other essential hospital staff for the challenge of ICD-10 coding and documentation.
