Current ICD-10 Status Update

ICD-10 is now in effect as of October 1, 2015 and Quest Diagnostics is fully prepared.

Clients should now be submitting ICD-10 codes for all lab services with a date of service on or after October 1, 2015. 

Quanum EHR

Quest Diagnostics is committed to providing you timely access to information about the ICD-10 transition. In addition to the Quanum EHR ICD-10 Product Overview Video we shared in mid-summer, we continue to perform end-to-end testing with passing codes from Quanum EHR to various Patient Management Systems. Following are some key points:

  • The new Diagnosis Code selection options within Quanum EHR are now incorporated into the existing product workflow. This limits the need for additional training
  • The ICD-10 codes have been added to the current code selection fields. The codes allow you the option of Snomed, ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes.
  • You will have the ability to select ICD-9 codes after October 1, 2015 for services that occurred prior to October 1, 2015 and/or for those services delivered that don’t require ICD-10.
  • ICD-9 to ICD-10 translation is now provided during the Diagnosis look-up. You are now able to enter the ICD-9 code, and associated ICD-10 codes are provided. This will assist in your transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes within the Clinical Note and Problem List.
  • The ICD-10 Code selection process includes filters to limit the diagnosis selected by Age and Gender.

For existing Quanum EHR customers, all current resources can be located in our Training Center: Quanum EHR > Help > Online Training.

If you are not yet a customer, and are interested in learning more about our solutions, call us today at 888-835-3409.

 

Other EHR Vendors

  • Clients who utilize other EHR vendors should continue to work with them to ensure ICD-10 codes will be able to be submitted with their ordered tests.

  • We will continue to communicate with our clients and engage in education efforts throughout 2015 to ensure the smoothest transition possible.

Scheduled and Standing Orders

  • In preparation for the October 1, 2015 implementation of ICD-10 codes, ICD-10 codes will be made available to you, beginning April 1, on the Quanumâ„¢ eLabs. You may be required to provide a valid ICD-9 and ICD-10 diagnosis code with a scheduled or standing order since it may require the patient to obtain laboratory services before and after the new ICD-10 implementation date of October 1, 2015. The order cannot be completed without a valid ICD-9 and ICD-10 diagnosis code, if the services will continue on or after October 1, 2015.

  • Also, please confirm that you chose the most specific ICD-10 code for each diagnosis. For more information, please visit our ICD-10 planning webpage at QuestDiagnostics.com/ICD10.
