WEDI Clarifies Clinical Documentation in 2017 ICD-10 Guidance

A WEDI issue brief discusses the clinical documentation improvement provisions within the 2018 ICD-10 Official Guidelines.

The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) has released an issue brief on clinical documentation and the 2017 ICD-10 Official Guidelines.

The 2017 guidelines include a specific provision about clinical documentation. In guideline 19, CMS discusses code assignment and clinical criteria.

“The assignment of a diagnosis code is based on the provider’s diagnostic statement that the condition exists,” the guideline states. “The provider’s statement that the patient has a particular condition is sufficient. Code assignment is not based on clinical criteria used by the provider to establish the diagnosis.”
