Establish proven MS-DRG assignment and auditing practices

With the implementation of ICD-10 codes in October 2015, the 2020 DRG Desk Reference (ICD-10-CM) gives access to crucial information to improve MS-DRG assignment practices, guidance on how to accurately assign DRGs under the MS-DRG system, and focuses on the Optimizing section of the DRG Desk Reference based on ICD-10 codes. 

The DRG Desk Reference (ICD-10-CM) is designed to work hand in hand with DRG Expert and the Guide to Clinical Validation, Documentation and Coding, which is the clinical section from the DRG Desk Reference based on ICD-9 codes. This product is needed to answer all your DRG questions for all inpatient stays starting after October 1, 2019, as those claims will use the MS-DRG methodology based on ICD-10-CM.
