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…)

Data Specialist, Data Services Team

DaveSellers

Dave joined the Stratasan team in October 2017 as a Data Specialist. Originally from Hershey, PA, he graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2009 with a B.S. in Information Technology, a concentration in Database Management Systems, and a minor in Business Administration. While new to the healthcare industry, Dave brings a strong data-centric skillset across the data engineering, data architecture, and data analysis disciplines. Prior to Stratasan, he has worked primarily in the financial services industry: in Boston, MA with Fidelity Investments and, most recently, spending time with Chubb Insurance while living in London, UK. Upon deciding to return home from the UK, the prospect of more sunny days, the thriving restaurant scene, the healthcare infrastructure, the friendly people, and the (relatively) low cost of living led him and his wife to choose Nashville as their new home in May of 2017. When not working, Dave can be found around town running with the East Nasty running club, out supporting his favorite “football” teams, the Philadelphia Eagles and Tottenham Hotspur, contributing his technical skills to the civic nonprofit “Code for Nashville,” or holed up at home trying to find his inner Bob Vila as a first time homeowner.
