ICD-10, or the tenth revision of the International Classification of Diseases, is a World Health Organization-approved designation of the aspects of disease treatment. These include categories of diseases and treatment modalities, broken down into more than 141,000 designations. The previous ICD had only 17,000 codes, diagnoses and procedures. The United States is one of the last countries in the world to adopt these standards. Although Forbes magazine predicts that most practices and hospitals have are not ICD-10-ready, the Department of Health and Human Services has mandated that all medical practices, hospitals and other medical record-keeping organizations be trained and ICD-10 compliant by October 1, 2014. This is essential as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid services will also be adopting the ICD-10 standard and will require proper medical coding in order to provide reimbursement.
