Overview of Clinical Classifications Software for ICD-10-CM/PCS

The Clinical Classifications Software (CCS) for ICD-10-CM and PCS is a diagnosis and procedure categorization scheme that can be employed in many types of projects analyzing data on diagnoses and procedures. CCS is based on the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision (ICD-10), a uniform and standardized coding system. The ICD-10's multitude of codes—over 69,800 diagnosis codes and 71,900 procedure codes—are collapsed into a smaller number of clinically meaningful categories that are sometimes more useful for presenting descriptive statistics than are individual ICD-10 codes. It is based on the CCS for ICD-9-CM and attempts to map ICD-10-CM/PCS codes into the same categories.

CCS can be used to identify populations for disease- or procedure-specific studies or to develop statistical reports providing information (such as charges and length of stay) about relatively specific conditions. It can be a useful way to categorize conditions when exploring data and can serve as a tool for reporting statistical information on hospitalizations.
