edit Urosepsis
  • Is this article based on "old rules" ie. Septicemia/Bacteremia/Fungemia is a legacy code, and article needs updating to include that sepsis may be combined with causative infections? Thanks! Pamela Piche 08:03, 2022 August 24 (CDT)
    • As per history of this whole page is still based on the old coding schema. Is it actually needed in the new schema? I propose we turn this page into a link to Template:ICD10 Guideline Sepsis instead. Ttenbergen 09:32, 2022 August 24 (CDT)

edit Non-standard ICD10 Diagnoses Dx grouping JALT
  • With our addition of codes, collectors may use one of our codes rather than the closest standard ICD10 code. In that case, the dx would not show up in the range. How should we address this? The most likely candidates above seem Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP, cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP)) and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome)
    • AG REPLY -- for this nonstd BOOP code, there are no existing issues regarding any of the comorbid groups (e.g. Charlson)
      • Allan, could you confirm that that this is what we found when we looked into BOOP.
  • AG REPLY --- so far Tina the only 2 U-codes that would ever be a primary dx are U04 and U14.68 -- which belong respectively to ICD10 chapters J and E. But whenever we add a new U-code we need to remember to decide which chapter (if any) it needs to be included under. Tina to add to template.
    • Actually, neither BOOP nor SARS would currently be captured by our APACHE Acute Dxs in ICD10 codes filter - they likely should be. So this is still an issue and we would miss them if we did something similar. How do we fix it for the Apache codes and prevent this problem going fwd? Ttenbergen 15:22, 2022 June 30 (CDT)
      • Discussed at JALT, Allan will review. Ttenbergen 10:32, 2022 August 24 (CDT)

    edit Instructions for importing a batch of DSM Data JALT
  • There is a long-outstanding request to Allan to map the new labs that have come in in the last few months. I emailed a list this evening to get this done. This is currently on the agenda for the Task meeting as well. Ttenbergen 22:11, 2022 April 20 (CDT)
    • Discussed at JALT, Allan has heard back and meeting is being booked. Ttenbergen 10:01, 2022 August 24 (CDT)

    edit Meningitis, viral - incl West Nile JALT Do we use this code for those patients that are being treated as viral meningitis, but the culture is negative? 14:26, 2022 August 30 (CDT) 2022-08-30 7:26:43 PM
    edit ABG Data z
  • Identified as something we should do to streamline data collection. I have made this page to document progress toward this import. Blood gas data is in DSM listing; need to compare to see if we can use it
    • Allan will revisit with Lab people whether this is obtainable now Ttenbergen 11:34, 2022 February 9 (CST)

    edit Template:ICD10 Guideline MRSA z "It was decided that Allan with contact Dr. Embil after COVID is over and see if we can obtain this data from Infection Control. If so, we could import it into the database, and have our data collectors cease obtaining it." - did anything come of that? 2021-01-12 8:59:00 PM
