To help hospital organizations and physician practices convert systems, reports and records into the language of ICD-10, 3M has released a new version of the 3M ICD-10 Code Translation Tool, which has been expanded to include Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) and other HCPCS codes. Using sophisticated translation technology, the software automatically reviews lists of ICD-9 or CPT and other HCPCS codes and finds the associated ICD-10 codes. ICD-10 transition teams can use the software to normalize reports, help educate staff, update processes, and reduce the time and resources devoted to code conversion.

The 3M ICD-10 Code Translation Tool is a cloud-based application that leverages more than 30 years of 3M coding experience to analyze clinical information, identify complex coding relationships, and create mappings and lists to meet the specific needs of healthcare organizations. It can be used to convert ICD-9 and CPT coding-based forms, reports, reimbursement contracts, policies, and systems to ICD-10. The tool can also be used to identify the financial impact of ICD-10 on future reimbursement.

The enhanced 3M ICD-10 Code Translation Tool is part of 3M’s complete suite of ICD-10 services and software, which also includes ICD-10 consulting services for clinical documentation improvement, the industry-leading 3M Coding and Reimbursement System, and the 3M ICD-10 Education Program, a comprehensive web-based curriculum that prepares hospital staff and physicians for ICD-10 documentation and coding.
