Nearly one year ago, Medi-Span launched ICD-10 mapping files for its customers to map Medi-Span proprietary vocabularies to ICD-10, helping customers to meet HHS compliance requirements before the previously-set deadline. Several Medi-Span clinical content sets utilize proprietary vocabularies to identify diseases, conditions and procedures. These include Drug Disease Monitoring System™, Medical Conditions Master Database™, The Medi-Span Solution® or Middleware COM, Drug Information Bridge™, and Medi-Span® Clinical. Medi-Span continues to support its customers with the flexibility to either continue with existing Medi-Span solutions or to implement more current and advanced Medi-Span offerings to meet the ICD-10 requirements. Available in flat file and API solutions, these files help enable healthcare systems to translate to and from codes in the patient record, supporting interoperability. The data includes:
