Vocabulary support (ICD-10 and CPT) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    On most of our HealthVault projects, we end up populating a HealthVault record with Conditions based on ICD codes and Procedures based on CPT codes. So far we've been using "icd9-cm" vocabulary. However, for CPT, there's no vocabulary currently supported to the best of my knowledge.

    Does anyone know if there is any support for CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) vocabulary planned in future?

    Also, as the medical world is preparing for the transition to ICD-10, will there be a new successor to the icd-9 vocabulary currently supported in the HealthVault API?

    Best,


    Manish

  • Hi Manish,

    Adding ICD-10 and CPT code vocabularies to HealthVault is on our feature backlog to add evenetually.

    In the meantime, you can absolutely code HealthVault data using ICD-10 and CPT codes today. The CodableValue type is designed to allow you to specify the vocabulary name, family, version and the vocabulary code from industry standard vocabularies or custom ones.

  • Thanks Ali.

    quick follow-up: currently when we populate a Condition, we create it using a CodableValue with VocabularyName="icd9cm", Family="icd", Version="1.0"

    If we wanted to start using ICD-10, what values would we use? e.g. "icd10cm","icd","2.0" respectively

  • The above looks good except the version would be 1.0 to represent the first version of icd10..
