    Description

      Implementation guidance is outdated and doesn't reflect changes to UCDI and valueset changes.

      change:

      • The 2015 Certification rule requires the use of SNOMED CT for problem list entries. Following the rules for [required] binding to coded data types, ICD or other local codes can be used as translations to SNOMED CT.
      • The US Core Condition Code supports ICD-9-CM for historical purposes only. ICD-10-CM is available and may be used as the primary code for current encounter diagnoses.
