|Data Element (edit)|
|Field Name:||Dx Priority|
|CCMDB Label:||not stated|
|Table:||L ICD10 table|
|Program:||Med and CC|
The priority of an ICD10 diagnosis, used to rank and group.
Legacy implementation right in the table
The Dx_Priority is coded as part of the ICD10 collection for admit, acquired and comorbid DX codes.
Only one of the Admit Diagnoses with the lowest Dx Priority must have the Dx Primary checkbox checked.
The number could be anything, e.g. the lowest might be 0.9. Using decimal numbers can be helpful in re-ranking diagnoses as more information becomes available.
|Example of adjusting priorities|
You initially coded three dxs as priority 1, 2 and 3. Then the you realize that the dx with priority 2 is actually the more important one. You change it to 0.5, so now the priorities are 0.5, 1, 3 and 0.5 is the lowest, so can be used with Dx Primary.
The priority is also used to group combined ICD10 codes.
