Announcing 2021 Stratasan Product Line Updates

We’ve updated Stratasan MSDRG, ICD-10 diagnosis, ICD-10 procedure, and CPT/HCPCS code product lines. These updates are based on input we’ve received from customers, the need for more consistent logic around product lines, and the addition of new codes that need to be assigned to the appropriate product lines. These changes will affect all customers using Stratasan product lines and will allow users to gain a more accurate understanding of their market.

We standardized the naming of main product lines and sub-product lines across code groups. For example, if the main product line is cardiovascular/thoracic surgery in one code group, it maintains the same name throughout code groups.  Additionally, we added more specificity to many sub-product lines. We also used the primary physician specialty associated with the code to assist in product line assignment.

There is an ICD-10 dx sub-product line for a diagnosis of COVID and for a non-diagnosis of COVID. There are several CPT codes in a COVID sub-product line as well as a sub-product line for telehealth. These will help track the impact of COVID.
