Overview of Clinical Classifications Software for Services and Procedures


CPT® and HCPCS

CCS-Services and Procedures provides a method for classifying Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes into clinically meaningful procedure categories. CPT is a proprietary coding system developed by the American Medical Association (AMA) for coding services provided by health care professionals. CPT is also referred to as HCPCS Level I. HCPCS (also referred to as HCPCS Level II) is a supplementary coding system developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to account for supplies and services not accounted for in CPT (HCPCS Level I). The procedure categories are identical to the CCS with the addition of specific categories unique to the professional service and supply codes in CPT/HCPCS. CCS-Services and Procedures can be used with any data that include CPT or HCPCS procedure information.

More than 9,000 CPT/HCPCS codes and 6,000 HCPCS codes are collapsed into 244 clinically meaningful categories that may be more useful for presenting descriptive statistics than are individual CPT or HCPCS codes. For example, CCS-Services and Procedures can be used to identify populations for procedure-specific studies or to develop statistical reports providing information (such as charges and length of stay) about relatively specific procedures.

ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-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.
