Identifiers:

Identifiers are assigned as follows:
  • CODE: 3 or 7-character code from icd10pcs_order_YYYY.txt, or assembled code from icd10pcs_tables_YYYY.xml
  • SAUI: Not applicable
  • SCUI: same as CODE

Atoms (MRCONSO):


Term Type Origin
AB CODE: 7-character code from icd10pcs_order_YYYY.txt (character positions 7-13)
STR: Short description from icd10pcs_order_YYYY.txt (character positions 6-76)
SCUI: same as CODE
SUPPRESS = "Y"

Note: AB atoms are created when character position 15 = "1", indicating that the code is valid for submission on a UB04
HS CODE: 3-character code from icd10pcs_order_YYYY.txt (character positions 7-9)
STR: Short description from icd10pcs_order_YYYY.txt (character positions 6-76)
SCUI: same as CODE
SUPPRESS = "Y"

Note: HS atoms are created when character position 15 = "0", indicating that the code is a "header" -- not valid for submission on a UB04
HT CODE: 3-character code from icd10pcs_order_YYYY.txt (character positions 7-9)
STR: Short description from icd10pcs_order_YYYY.txt (character positions 6-76)
SCUI: Same as CODE

Note: HS atoms are created when character position 15 = "0", indicating that the code is a "header" -- not valid for submission on a UB04
HX CODE: assembled from values icd10pcs_tables_XXXX.xml
STR: assembled from values in icd10pcs_tables_XXXX.xml, using "@" as a subfield separator
SCUI: same as CODE

TTY = "HX" atoms are created for levels 2-6
MTH_HX CODE: assembled from values icd10pcs_tables_YYYY.xml
STR: assembled from values in icd10pcs_tables_YYYY.xml, using "@" as a subfield separator; the string "(Therapy)" or "(Procedure)" is appended as appropriate
SCUI: same as CODE

TTY = "MTH_HT" atoms are created for levels 1-2
PT CODE: 7-character code from icd10pcs_order_YYYY.txt (character positions 7-13)
STR: Long description from icd10pcs_order_YYYY.txt (character positions 78 - end)
SCUI: same as CODE
SUPPRESS = "Y"

Note: PT atoms are created when character position 15 = "1", indicating that the code is valid for submission on a UB04
PX CODE: assembled from values icd10pcs_tables_YYYY.xml
STR: assembled from values in icd10pcs_tables_YYYY.xml, using "@" as a subfield separator
SCUI: same as CODE

TTY = "PX" atoms are created for level 7
