The ICD-10 Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-PCS) is a catalog of procedural codes used by medical professionals for hospital inpatient healthcare settings. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) maintain the catalog in the U.S. releasing yearly updates.

The rationale for this decision in most organizations stemmed from a lack of documentation regarding the route of administration, an element necessary for code assignment. It was also decided that this information could be obtained from the blood bank or through hospital charges.
The best, but not necessarily most efficient, way to determine if anyone is using coded data is to stop coding it. At times it seems no one is paying attention to what we code as long as they get what they need, but if you stop coding what they need, things start emerging that you didn’t anticipate. Case in point: the impact blood transfusion procedure coding has on quality measures.
The need for this data stresses the impact ICD-10-CM/PCS codes have not just for reimbursement, but for their original intended purpose of data collection. At Haugen Consulting Group, we recommend in our audits and education, that organizations report ICD-10-PCS codes for blood transfusions on all maternal cases. In establishing this internal coding policy, organizations should consult with clinical staff to establish a default coding policy regarding the body part for these codes.
