Save the dates: 2021 code system updates at-a-glance

In order to stay current, standardized code systems provide routine updates and adjustments. Some are annual, others occur multiple times a year, and then – as the pandemic aptly demonstrated – there is the need for off-cycle additions. It’s a lot to keep up with, but we’re here to help.

At IMO, the mapping of standardized codes to clinical terminology is at the heart of both what we do and the solutions we build. Getting these maps, or connections, correct is essential, and it takes a talented, detail-oriented team with deep expertise to make it all happen. But their work is far from “one-and-done.”

The major standardized clinical terminologies, like SNOMED CT®, LOINC, ICD-10-CM and Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) are updated every year, often multiple times. And with each update – be it planned or off-cycle – we’re ready with the revisions, maps, maintenance, and content releases that make IMO one of the industry’s leading medical coding companies.

With this in mind, we’ve compiled an at-a-glance calendar that highlights many of the key code set updates for the year ahead. Just bookmark this page or download the infographic for all the information you need – organized and saved in a single pdf for quick and easy reference.
