The aim of the ICD-10-CM is to serve as a proper statistical classification tool for morbidity reporting in the United States.
In addition, ICD-10-CM greatly expands the codes for medical complications and medical safety issues. Complete, accurate, and up-to-date procedure codes will improve data on the outcomes, efficacy, and costs of new medical technology and ensure fair reimbursement policies for the use of this technology. Expanded detail will help payers and providers more easily identify patients in need of disease management and more effectively tailor disease management programs.
Previous studies have focused on the increased specificity in ICD-10-CM for fully capturing and monitoring public outbreaks, as well as for research, reporting, and surveillance use, compared with ICD-9-CM.23 A study found ICD-10-CM to be more specific in capturing public health diseases than ICD-9-CM for the National Vital Statistics Report's top 10 causes of morbidity.
