Salt Lake City-headquartered 3M Health Information Systems released its ICD-10 Code Translation Tool.

The Department of Health and Human Services has set October 1, 2013 as the implementation date for ICD-10, the new national coding standard that will replace ICD-9.

The product contains menu-driven features to convert existing systems and software applications to ICD-10, or to create customized mappings for specific business needs. 3M says its new software identifies all reasonable ICD-10 alternatives for the ICD-9 codes held in an information system, and performs automated mappings where a simple one-to-one map exists. The software then isolates the remaining complex codes and provides the user with reference data to assist in fine-tuning the final conversions to ICD-10, it says.

Codes based on the

International Classification of Diseases (ICD), are used throughout healthcare to record, store, and retrieve diagnosis and procedure information for clinical, epidemiological and quality purposes, and for reimbursement.
