Join ISDS on June 3rd for an instructional webinar on ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM/PCS mapping tools, including the newly released MapIt tool. This tool, which was developed by AHRQ and CDC, is an automated mapping tool that utilizes General Equivalence Mappings (GEMs) to provide both forward and backward or reverse mapping between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes.

This webinar will begin with a description of the utility of several mapping tools in supporting the current ISDS/CDC ICD-9/10 Transition project. Then, presenters from NAHDO and UC Davis will provide background information on the MapIt tool, its use, and its accessibility. The presentation will encompass the tool development and mapping logic as well as some mapping examples. Finally, attendees will see a live demonstration of the tool so they can use and apply it in their daily public health practice.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to…

  1. Describe how to use the MapIt tool;
  2. Determine tool access, capabilities, and application;
  3. Know how the MapIt tool can be applied to the current ICD-9/10 Transition.
