US list members need to be clear when they use "ICD10" whether they mean the international classification of diseases only, or also the procedure codes (as in icd9p) which are not part of the official classification but are widely used in the US for billing etc. These latter codes which are country-specific (e.g. ICD10-AM, ICD10-CM) and are the property of the bodies which produced them.

Subject: Re: st: ICD9 to ICD10 converter utility?

Since I originally posted on the Statalist back in 2003, I have had
20-30 individual requests for my simple icd1029.ado program which
converts codes one direction (ICD10 to ICD9). Most of these requests
came in the past 3 years (and most of those in the past few months -
so the demand is increasing).  From what I've seen from Rebecca Pope &
others, there are better and more official conversion tables out there
than what I found 8 years ago.

We use Stata's built-in icd9 programs daily, and I would strongly
support not only a similar program for icd10 but maybe something added
on so that there would be conversion allowed back and forth with the
caveat of the limitations with such a conversion.

I invite you to read Ken Higbee & Bill Gould's response to this back
in 2003:

Is there any way to address their concerns so that this could become
an official addition?

I will forward what I received to you privately. But you or others in the same boat may want to contact him to see if there have been updates (or perhaps he will see this and reply).
