## Study Notes

### I-10 Coding Overview

• I-10 codes are alphanumeric, representing a more complex coding system than previous iterations.
• The I-10 system is indexed similarly to ICD-9-CM, facilitating a smoother transition for coders familiar with ICD-9.
• Unlike ICD-9, which has 17 chapters, I-10 contains more chapters, reflecting a broader range of coded conditions.
• The United States is not the first nation to adopt the I-10 coding system; other countries have already implemented it.

### Development and Issuance

• The World Health Organization (WHO) issued the I-10 coding system in 1993, establishing a global standard for health information.
• PCS stands for "Procedure Coding System," used in the U.S. for reporting inpatient procedures under the I-10 system.
• GEMs (General Equivalence Mappings) are mapping files that facilitate crosswalking between I-9 and I-10 codes, ensuring continuity and accuracy in coding.

### Implementation and Changes

• The implementation date for the I-10 system in the U.S. was set for October 1, 2013, marking a significant shift in healthcare documentation.
• The expansion of injury codes in the I-10 system was implemented using activity codes to capture various scenarios and details.

### Code Types

• Combination codes in the I-10 system allow the reporting of multiple diagnoses with a single code, enhancing coding efficiency.
