ISDS' ICD-10 Master Mapping Reference Table Now Available!

ICD-10 Master Mapping Reference Table 
ISDS is pleased to release the ICD-10 Master Mapping Reference Table (MMRT) as a tool and resource to assist public health professionals in code-mapping the conversion between ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM diagnostic codes.

The upcoming ICD-9/ICD-10 transition will have a significant impact on public health surveillance systems and activities that involve coded clinical data. It is imperative that public health agencies begin to prepare their systems, modify current business processes, and train their workforce to ensure a seamless transition to ICD-10 coded data. To address this urgent need, CDC worked with clinicians and public health professionals to develop ICD-9 to ICD-10 translations based on conceptual mapping for 140 syndromes arranged into 16 broader syndrome groupings. ISDS coordinated the community input on these codesets and concepts, to ensure that they reflect how public health agencies use diagnostic codes for syndromic surveillance activities. Three reviews for each syndrome chapter were compiled, and a panel of syndromic surveillance experts subsequently assessed that the reviews for inclusion. The resulting reference tables, which include 90 syndromes grouped into 13 chapters, serve as a resource for public health agencies looking to ensure a smooth transition between ICD-9 and ICD-10 code-mapping.
If you have any questions or comments for fellow users of the ICD-10 MMRT, please visit the ISDS Community Forum ICD-10 MMRT page. If you have any questions for the creators of the ICD-10 MMRT, please e-mail icd10@syndromic.org. If providing feedback on code mappings, please be specific with chapter, syndrome and line number. Thank you! 

The ICD-10 Master Mapping Reference Table is made possible by funding to ISDS through the Council for State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) from the Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services (CSELS) within the Office of Public Health Scientific Services (OPHSS) at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
