As of October 1, 2015, diagnoses entered in CAREWare will use ICD-10 codes instead of ICD-9 codes. ICD-9 codes will still be available for diagnoses entered before that date, but all diagnoses entered on or after the ICD-10 switch date will use the new system. Note that you will have to upgrade your version of CAREWare to the ICD-10 build to have access to this functionality. To upgrade to the latest build of CAREWare click here
FAQ:Will ICD-9 codes be converted to ICD-10 codes?
No. ICD-9 codes will still be used for diagnosis records before the ICD-10 date. So, a given diagnosis will have either an ICD-9 code or an ICD-10 code, depending on the date of the diagnosis (NOTE: This is the date on the diagnosis record itself, NOT the date the diagnosis was entered into CAREWare.)
How will this affect custom reports?
Since the ICD-10 code is a new field in diagnosis records, they will be reported separately from ICD-9 codes. We recommend creating a new set of reports that use the new ICD-10 codes, and run these starting on October 1, 2015.
How do I set up available ICD-10 definitions in CAREWare?
Available ICD-10 codes are imported into CAREWare via a special setup file. Instructions for creating and importing a setup file, as well as a master file containing all ICD-10 codes can be found here
What is the build number for the ICD-10 version of CAREWare and when will it be available?
The ICD-10 diagnosis codes were released in build 874 on September 17, 2015. Here
is a list of changes to CAREWare by build number.
