ICD0-10 codes in observational research

Free Webinar: What You Should Know about Integrating ICD-10 Codes into your Research Study

U.S. healthcare providers are now required to use the ICD-10 version of the World Health Organization’s classification of diseases.  The introduction of these disease and procedure codes creates significant analytic challenges for researchers performing longitudinal analyses with observational data that span the transition date of October 1, 2015. 

UBC’s Database Analytics Automation team will leverage 10+ years of experience standardizing drug and condition vocabularies across diverse observational data to show you some cool tricks of the trade, strategies, and practical solutions for integrating ICD-10 codes into your research. The webinar will demonstrate the integration of ICD-10 codes into cohort and outcome definitions using real-life examples

During this presentation you will learn:

  • What are the insights that 25+ years of ICD global experience can provide to U.S. researchers?
  • What are the significant enhancements to both ICD-10 diagnosis and procedures codes compared to ICD-9?
  • How can transition tools that map between ICD-9 and ICD-10 help me in my study design? What are their strengths and weaknesses?
  • How does the increased specificity of ICD-10 codes improve the ability to monitor product safety in observational data?
  • What are the best on-line resources and training tools?
