Much focus has been given to the pending adoption of ICD-10 coding standards in the US... The transition has been delayed for many years and many organizations are spending millions of dollars in preparing their workforces for the adoption date on October 1, 2014... Coding productivity is expected to decrease ten through thirty percent for the first six months after the transition and lower levels will probably persist after that... There is the potential for a decline in accuracy in coding when the US adopts ICD-10, but the degree to which that severity is realized will depend on the education and tools available to medical professionals... ICD-10 provides greater specificity and more clinical information than ICD-9, which allows for the possibility of a more accurate clinical diagnosis... The following three datasets would be used to create the ICD-10 anatomographer: ICD-10-CM release (2013), made available by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; the FMA code descriptions, made available from the University of Washington Structural Informatics Group; and the anatomography.obj files, made available from BodyParts3D... The linked datasets would then be linked to the anatomography .obj files using ESRI ArcGIS... The ICD-10 anatomographer could be integrated into an existing electronic medical record as an application or as a standalone application accessible to users via the internet... Given the current error rate for ICD-9 admission coding, the proposed ICD-10 anatomographer could be used to address many inpatient coding errors... As a visual tool the user interface of a 3D application would make finding the correct code intuitive, as codes are selected by clicking on the specific body part within the ICD-10 anatomographer application... A preliminary proof of concept exercise performed by the authors confirms the proposed concept would be feasible... Further research and testing is needed to confirm the proposed ICD-10 anatomographer would be a viable solution to addressing the current coding inaccuracy problem.
