EON Systems Inc. has announced the launch of its ICD Converter App, which is available on all Android, iPad and iPhone products.  The ICD Converter App features both ICD-9 to ICD-10 conversion and ICD-10 to ICD-9 conversion. In addition to being able to cross convert the codes, users will also be able to type in keywords to receive the corresponding ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes for the search term entered.

The app also will warn the user of the different codes available for different variations of a condition, such as the right/left specificity needed with certain codes or the seventh character needed for an injury or fracture code. The user can search by procedure code or diagnosis code, as well.

“The ICD-10 conversion is an enormous undertaking for all of us in the healthcare industry,” said Ken Thomas, president of EON Systems. “With the prevalence of smart phones and tablets today, we believed it would be advantageous to create a tool that might help make this transition to ICD-10 a bit easier, not just for EON Systems’ clients, but for anyone in the healthcare industry that could benefit from the features and functionalities offered in the ICD Converter app.”
