Medical: The Universal Health and Hospital Information System
Medical version 0.0.34 has just been released !
The most important feature of this version is the addition of ICD-10-PCS.
The International Classification of Diseases tenth revision Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-PCS) will complement the already implemented ICD-10 coding for pathologies. This duple provides a very efficient way of coding for doctors and administrative personnel, making the data interchange between organizations very easy and with a common language, around the world.
In this version of Medical we have the 2009 ICD-10-PCS version, which contains 72589 medical procedures, from surgery to substance administration and monitoring. ICD-10-PCS is the replacement for ICD-9-CM.
In this way, Medical is pioneer by having already the two standard for diagnosis (ICD-10) and procedures (ICD-10-PCS) that are to be adopted by most institutions in the coming years.
This version also has major improvements in dealing with the queries of large tables, modifications on the surgery and patient evaluation and some bug fixes. Check the Changelog for all the modifications.
