U.S. National Library of Medicine Releases Draft SNOMED CT to ICD-9-CM Rules-Based Map to Support Reimbursement
Date:11/17/2009

ple who intend to use the map for the billing use case,” said Betsy Humphreys, deputy director, NLM. “The results from this test will inform and influence the development of related maps including SNOMED CT to ICD-10-CM (International Classifications of Diseases, 10th revision, Clinical Modification) and ICD-10-PCS (International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision, Procedure Coding System).”

SNOMED Terminology Solutions™ (STS), a division of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), developed the map on behalf of the NLM. CAP STS, and the American Health Information Management Association Foundation (AHIMA Foundation), on behalf of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), completed a collaborative review and validation of the draft map to ensure that the result accurately reflects the meaning and usage of ICD-9-CM. James Campbell, MD, at the University of Nebraska, was also instrumental in the development of this draft map.

The mapping is provided for the benefit of software vendors and the information technology community at large on the assumption that they will employ the data to create functionality to support semi-automated administrative and reimbursement reporting a clinical data record that uses SNOMED CT.

SNOMED CT—a globally recognized controlled medical vocabulary—provides a common language for electronic health applications that enables a consistent way of capturing, sharing, and aggregating health data across specialties and sites of care.

“The final map will become a critical component for healthcare IT systems in the United States, linking SNOMED CT and ICD-9-CM for streamlined reimbursement and administrative reporting,” said Kevin Donnelly, vice president and general manager, CAP STS.
