Construction of a semi-automatic ICD-10 coding system
Construction of a semi-automatic ICD-10 coding system (Springer).
The International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision (ICD-10) has been widely used to describe the diagnosis information of patients. Automatic ICD-10 coding is important because manually assigning codes is expensive, time consuming and error prone. Although numerous approaches have been developed to explore automatic coding, few of them have been applied in practice. Our aim is to construct a practical, automatic ICD-10 coding machine to improve coding
efficiency and quality in daily work.
The values of P were 89.27 and 88.38% in the first testing phase and the second
testing phase, respectively, which demonstrate high precision. The automatic
ICD-10 coding system completed more than 160,000 codes in 16 months, which
reduced the workload of the coders.
Our automatic coding system is well suited for the coding task.
