Background: ICD-10 is a clinical coding system maintained by the World Health Organization. The system is used in most "advanced" countries. Hospitals in the USA must convert from ICD-9 to ICD-10 by 2013.
Problem: I've been trying to find a table of ICD-10 codes to import into a database; but the only listings that I can find are in publicly available pdf files. I've tried to copy the text to text files, but the resulting layout is horrible -- it would take, literally, weeks or months of manual tweaking to parse.
Does anyone have or know of an existing table of ICD-10 codes that is already "import friendly"?
10 seconds with google finds something in CSV format in a zip file downloadable from the bottom of http://www.hcup-us.ahrq.gov/toolssoftware/icd_10/ccs_icd_10.jsp - is that any use to you?
Hmm.....AHRQ never came up in my googling.
The table is almost what I need; but also has additional, useful information. In essence, AHRQ had a table that maps ICD-9 codes to their CCS categories. They have added a table that maps ICD-10 codes to those same categories. The mapping is *very* useful. The only thing missing are the ICD-10 code descriptions.
Thanks for the help!
Correction: The table has ICD-10 diagnosis code descriptions! Now I just need them to create the same table for ICD-10 procedure codes. (I'm sure that will follow soon as they have the analagous table for ICD-9's.)
