App Review - ICD10Doc - Diagnosis, Procedures and Billing codes

Today we are going to present you one of the best ICD10Doc apps available on the App Store. As you all know the US healthcare transitions to ICD-10 last month. The ICD-10 has different clinical modification systems and codes. The US ICD-10 Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM), for instance, has some 68,000 codes. The US also has the ICD-10 Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-PCS), a coding system that contains 76,000 codes not used by other countries. 

In order to find the correct ICD-10 codes for the patients’ diagnosis you will need a website or an app that already has all of the codes indexed that has great search function. One of the best services you can find online is certainly ICD10Doc.

The iOS app helps with finding the correct code - diagnosis or procedure – in many vocabularies, terminologies and coding systems in addition to the (old) ICD 9 and the new ICD-10. But the most important - CPT - which determines how much will be eventually paid. It is one of the best rated apps loved by over 100 iOS users.

The app and website also have all coding systems: DRG - for hospitals only. APC and OPPS for outpatient facilities. Anesthesia - completely different arrangement, Dental, Office visits, then all the quality measurement systems - PQRS, HAC. Also it will enable you to determine which codes are allowed and under which circumstances and several other features.

One of the best features of the app is probably the search function, arguably it is one of the best you will find in an ICD10 app. The app precisely narrows the search down to exactly what it should be according to your search terms. That makes it a great tool to have it on your iOS device.
