There are 68000 diagnostic codes under the newly revised International Classification of diseases (ICD-10) system of the World Health Organization (who). In contrast, there are only 13000 ICD-9. Adding diagnostic codes is to simplify the payment process and reduce medical costs, but it also brings trouble to medical service providers.
According to a recent survey released by the American Health Information Management Association, 38% of providers believe that the revenue will decline in the first year after switching from ICD-9 to ICD-10, and only 6% say it will increase. Nevertheless, service providers have to prepare for this transition, and the official transfer date is set as October 1 this year. 40% of service providers said they would conduct "end-to-end" testing by the end of this year.
Although the benefits of ICD-10 are still controversial, there is a consensus on its coding system: it is eccentric and obscure. ICD-10 cited letter coding for the first time, and changed from the original pure digital coding to the mixed coding of letters and numbers. Here are the 16 most ridiculous diagnostic codes in ICD-10:
16. V97.33xd: it was involved in the aircraft engine and then encountered.
Was involved in the aircraft engine, survived, and then involved again (later encountered)? First of all, I have to admit that the patient really has a little back. Secondly, the patient is obviously a "Wolverine" (surviving), and he should be left for imaging examination for future generations. (from a technical point of view, "subsequent encounter" here refers to encountering the doctor, not encountering the aircraft engine again.)
15. W51.xxa: accidentally bumping into or being bumped by others, leaving sequelae.
Since the sequelae is left, it means that there is a fierce collision between the two people like "bumper car". This can only happen at music festivals, subways or fierce war zones. The suggestion must be treated with caution.
14. V00.01xd: pedestrian collided with roller skater and was injured.
First of all, is there anything wrong with roller skating in Central Park? Who else knows it's coming? Secondly, are people who wear roller skates still walkers? If the answer to these two questions is "yes", these activities are illegal because they are too dangerous.
13. Y93. D: activities involving arts and crafts.
Camping in the open air is a very dangerous thing. Hot glue guns and knitting needles are certainly not allowed to take on the plane, but we are used to allowing 7-year-old children to touch them. This is an urgent problem to be solved.
12. Z99.89: dependence on machinery and equipment, not other classifications.
11. Y92.146: Prison swimming pool is the place of external causes.
Another code says "the day spa in the swimming pool is the place of the accident".
10. S10.87xa: other surface bites at other specific parts of the neck.
Well, let's get this straight. Isn't this "lip print", although why this person is allowed to leave this mark is still a mystery.
9. W55.41xa: bitten by a pig.
What does this man do at the pig farm? After all, pigs are not pets.
8. W61.62xd: attacked by ducks.
Like most other waterfowl, ducks are narrow-minded animals. In this case, you must be treated urgently, because ducks may cause serious harm to you.
7. Z63.1: problems caused by parent-in-law relationship.
Who didn't show up?
6. W220.2xd: walking into a lamp post.
It may only happen once in a lifetime. If someone hits a lamppost regularly, it's time to see a psychologist immediately.
5. Y93. D: v91.07xd: burn due to water skid fire.
How did this happen? Water skis are also flammable?
4. W55.29xa: other contact with cattle.
There are codes for "being bitten by a cow" and "being kicked by a cow". What other contact do people have with cows? To be exact, it should be "contact with cattle leads to admission"?
3. W22.02xd: v95.43xs: Residents injured by spacecraft crash.
The existence of this code is a distrust of NASA.
2. W61.12xa: attacked by Macaw.
1. R46.1: bizarre personal image
Lady Gaga, is that you? To get back to business, who decides a person's image is strange?
