This Web page summarizes key issues for researchers using HCUP and other administrative databases that include ICD-10-CM/PCS coding. The page documents key differences in the structure of HCUP databases, provides general guidance and forewarning to users analyzing outcomes that may be affected by the transition to the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding system, and lists other related Web resources.
In October 2015, the United States transitioned to the ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding system for most inpatient and outpatient medical encounters and the ICD-10-PCS procedure coding system for inpatient hospital procedures. This transition is expected to have a direct impact on the reporting of medical services. In addition, health services research based on administrative databases will be affected as ICD-10-CM/PCS codes replace ICD-9-CM codes beginning in October 2015.
