Coding Resources in Transition: DSM-5 (now online in Psychiatry Online) and ICD-10

Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders :DSM-5 is now available at the Matas Library Information Desk for in-house use.  The online is now available in PsychiatryOnline.  Tulane will have access to both DSM-5™ and DSM-IV-TR® until October 1, 2013. At that time the online DSM-IV-TR® will be removed and added to the PsychiatryOnline site as a PDF.
 Reference WM 15 Am3d.5 2013

In addition to the DSM coding changes, be aware of the transition from the 30-year-old ICD-9 code set to ICD-10.  On October 1, 2014, the ICD-9 code sets usedto report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10. 

VisualDx 6.20 now includes both code sets for the dermatology codes!  In preparation for the October 2014 deadline for ICD-10 transition, VisualDx (online & mobile dermatology differential and diagnosis search) includes billable ICD-10 codes for all diagnoses.
