Assessing the impact of ICD-10 across your organization requires specific information from each department:

  • Does the department code health data or use coded data?
  • Does the department use retrospective coded data? If so, what is the specific timeframe for use? 1-2 years, 3-5 years, > 5 years? And by whom?
  • What are the qualifications or certifications of the staff members performing coding?
  • What department information systems hold coded data? What other systems are interfaced to the department systems?
  • What software or system vendors does the department work with regularly?
  • What is the extent of codes used? For example, are codes used for multiple body systems, or is coding limited to only one or two body systems?
  • Are coded data used both internally and externally to your department? If so, outline information dissemination (to/from, uses of data, whether is historical data are required).
  • Do department staff require education in conjunction with another department?
