"How will I ever be able to remember those new ICD-10-CM codes?" It's a question we're hearing from our customers with a growing sense of urgency. In structure and concept, ICD-10-CM is dramatically different from ICD-9-CM. One key difference is the first digit of an ICD-10-CM code: It's always an alpha character. While you might not be able to memorize every ICD-10-CM code, this tool uses mnemonics to help you connect the first letter of a code with the corresponding ICD-10-CM chapter. With a faster start, you'll get to the ICD-10-CM code you need more quickly and with less guesswork. Highlights:

  • Quick-reading explanations of each chapter in ICD-10-CM, including descriptions of the category (disease group, disorders, injuries, etc.)
  • Easy to-remember mnemonics associating the first letter of a code with the chapter in ICD-10; example: the letter "K" stands for "Knot in the stomach," which signifies digestive diseases (chapter 11)
  • Reference chart at-a-glance summary of each chapter: description, letter, mnemonic and a fun graphic
