CSTE Injury ICD-10-CM Transition Workgroup
Share |


On October 1, 2015, the Internal Classification of Diseases, Clinical Modification, 10th Revision (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 has impacted national and state-based injury and violence surveillance activities that use these records.


CSTE's Role

CSTE members and our partners are committed to ensuring that the highest level of reporting is maintained after this coding transition. 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.

ICD-10-CM Resources
The following resources and reports reflect 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).
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.
