These guidelines are a set of rules that have been developed to accompany and complement the official conventions and instructions provided within the ICD-10-CM itself. The instructions and conventions of the classification take precedence over guidelines. These guidelines are based on the coding and sequencing instructions in the Tabular List and Alphabetic Index of ICD-10-CM, but provide additional instruction. Adherence to these guidelines when assigning ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes is required under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The diagnosis codes (Tabular List and Alphabetic Index) have been adopted under HIPAA for all healthcare settings. A joint effort between the healthcare provider and the coder is essential to achieve complete and accurate documentation, code assignment, and reporting of diagnoses and procedures. These guidelines have been developed to assist both the healthcare provider and the coder in identifying those diagnoses that are to be reported.

The health care industry is moving toward a major change in the code set, or "language," used to report the reasons why a physician or health care professional provided care to a patient. Since 1978, the ICD-9-CM code set has been used to report these diagnoses. Within the next few years, the code set will be changing to ICD-10-CM. While there are many similarities, there are changes that those in the health information management profession (and those getting ready to enter this profession) must know and understand. With the use of color-coded text, this QuickStudy� guide helps make the transition easier to understand and simpler to incorporate into work behaviors.
