This is a request, but it's ICD-10 related, so I'm posting here. Since we know there will be some claims hanging out there after Oct 1 with ICD-9 codes on them, that haven't finished processing for whatever reason... it would be LOVELY if it were possible for each user to select whether using ICD-9 or 10. That way the doc could be seeing patients, and I can be working claims. Just a hint, hope, pretty please with sugar?
Don't let what you can't do keep you from doing what you can do!
Select the ICD10 option and the download options appear
Select Download All ICD 10 -or- Download modified ICD10 (just includes optometry related codes) Note: You can do it from any computer but you have to stay on the Diag Code screen until the download is complete.
On Oct 1st, turn on ICD10 codes at Admin/Company/Records Tab-> check Use ICD10 Codes in Records
Convert ICD-10 button If you have diagnosis buttons on your A&P tab that you use to enter common (ICD-9) codes, you can add the Convert ICD-10 button (FID -130) to your medical records. Once your codes are entered, click that button and it will display a list of all the codes that were entered. When you hover over an ICD9 code in the list, it offers options and you can select one to replace the ICD9. You have to hit the button again for each code that you swap and it doesn’t take the corrected codes off the listing but it does give you some help converting those codes. Diagnosis Code Converter You enter the ICD9 code or description and it lists possible ICD10 codes but you cannot enter codes into the record from there. Access it from the top menu bar EHR/Diagnosis Code Converter or add the Code Finder button (FID -131) to your med recs so you can access it there. Not sure why they didn't use the same name but either option opens the same window.
FWIW, I just added a button that opens ICD10data.com to my A&P tab. That's the site I always end up using when I have trouble finding a code. ICD10Data.com Button
Edit Medical Record Templates
Add a button with whatever name you want
Select Command Line
Enter the following text (including the quotes) into the command line "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" www.icd10data.com
Has anyone discussed what changes are needed in the medical records templates to provide for documentation to support the new codes? Have there been any templates created that have been shared that might be of use to view? Thank you!

So, is this the CALM before the STORM? Seems odd there haven't been many Crystal updates to ICD10. They must have really gotten it right early.
I have a question that has been asked of me but I would rather let the Mods themselves answer it officially for all to see. Can you switch between the full list of ICD10 codes and the modified list? That is, if a practice originally selected the FULL list due to the modified list not being complete - (or verse-visa) what is the preferred method of switching lists?
Seeing as how we were ready for ICD10 last year, we really haven't had much to do besides make a few new features...
As for downloading the list, you can switch back and forth as often as you'd like. Downloading either list usually takes less than a minute. To switch, you just go in and download the list you would like.
IMHO, I don't really see a benefit to downloading a partial list. The fact that you can now type in and search by partial words in the description, along with the convert buttons, I don't know why you would ever need to scroll through much of a list.
