CSTE Injury ICD-10-CM Transition Workgroup
Share |

On October 1, 2015, ICD-10-CM replaced ICD-9-CM for coding diagnoses in hospital discharge, emergency department, and outpatient records for reimbursement. This change in coding schemes will impact national and state-based injury and violence surveillance activities that use these records.

In Fall of 2016, CSTE in partnership with CDC National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) began ICD-10-CM implementation and evaluation efforts based on the Safe States Alliance’s ISW9 report, “The Transition from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM: Guidance for Analysis and Reporting of Injuries by Mechanism and Intent.” The efforts began through the formation of the CSTE Injury ICD-10-CM Transition Workgroup. The workgroup activities include assessing data quality, pilot testing the proposed external cause matrix, creating a validated dataset, and developing standardized case definitions for injury surveillance. We will post these resources on this webpage once they are complete.

If you would like to join the listserv to contribute to or to be informed of the CSTE Injury ICD-10-CM Transition Workgroup activities, please complete the following form.

For any questions, you may contact Amy Patel at the CSTE National Office.


Below are several resources reflecting the substantial work that others have done on identifying the appropriate ICD-10-CM codes for injury surveillance (the ICD-10 codes for mortality are not sufficient). I would suggest you review these reports:
In addition to the documents above, CDC National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) is developing SAS programs to implement the proposed case definition and external cause matrix.
