ICD-9 to ICD-10 Conversion Tool

drchrono has created ICD-9 to ICD-10 conversion tools to help ease your ICD-10 transition - here's a quick guide on where you can find these tools: 


1. Go to Schedule > Calendar

2. Click on the desired appointment in the calendar

3. Go to the billing tab of the appointment

4. Access the "ICD Version" section and select ICD-9 or ICD-10

5. As pictured below there is a blue "Convert to ICD-10" button next to each ICD9 code



1. Go to Clinical > Clinical Notes

2. Select the desired clinical note by clicking "Start Note" or "Edit" if the note has already been started

3. Click on the "Billing" section under "H&P"

4. The blue "Convert to ICD-10" button is next to all of your old ICD9 codes



1. Go to Billing > Fee Schedule

2. Click the ICD-9 tab

4. The blue "Convert to ICD-10" button is next to all of your old ICD9 codes. Please note that there is also now an ICD-10 tab where you can create fee schedules with ICD-10 codes.


1. Go to Schedule > Billing Profiles

2. Click the blue "Edit" icon next o the old billing profile you want to update

3. Click the grey "Convert to ICD-10" button next to the old ICD9 codes

NOTE: If you have a smaller screen resolution you may have to scroll to see the blue "Apply Codes" towards the bottom right of the pop-up box.

How does this tool work?

When you click on the blue "Convert" button a pop up will appear. If the ICD9 to ICD10 coding is a direct match, the ICD10 code will be automatically be added.

If it's not a 1:1 match the pop up will ask you to chose the correct scenario and then the correct ICD10 code associated with that scenario.

So for example the ICD9 code 754.35 (Congenital Dislocation Of One Hip With Subluxation Of Other Hip) has two initial scenarios when converting to ICD10. Selecting "Scenario 1" gives two options for ICD10 codes, Q65.01 and Q65.32. "Scenario 2" gives the options of Q65.02 and Q65.31. 

You must first decide if you want Scenario 1 or Scenario 2 and then select the right ICD10 code. Once you've done this click "Apply" and the ICD10 code will be added!
