PyCon 2018

PyCon is an annual convention for the discussion and promotion of the Python programming language. We here at Stratasan use Python to build and drive all of our products, so we make an effort to attend each year.

Being the largest conference focused on the Python programming language, there’s so much to do that doing everything is just impossible. When attending this conference, you’ll need to plan out what you are going to do based on what you are wanting to get out of it. (more…)

ICD-10 Diagnosis and Procedure Dataset Updates and DRG Definition Improvement

By Morgan Atkins

The Stratasan team is continuously looking for ways to improve our customers’ experiences and add value. With the switch to ICD-10, many healthcare organizations were tasked with a plethora of new codes to understand and define into main and sub-product lines. One of our recent initiatives has been to update our ICD-10 diagnosis and procedure definitions so that customers are no longer subjected to large chunks of data falling into the “undefined” category. Through this process, it was determined that our previous ICD-10 definition nomenclature could use some refinement as well. We decided to start fresh with new definition categories to create a uniform analysis experience.

While updating ICD-10 definitions, we recognized our DRG definitions needed to follow a similar naming structure so that users could have uniform analyses. We took the opportunity to also revamp our DRG definitions so that we would have cohesive naming conventions across all code-types.

We are happy to report that this update is complete and that current Stratasan product line definitions will be updated on March 1st. (more…)
