U.S. healthcare prepares ICD-10 diagnosis for Pokemon crisis

pokemonxray_420_0

If U.S. healthcare could survive the ICD-10 transition, it can survive the “Pokemon Go” epidemic.

There’s no word from the federal government that there are any ICD-10-PG codes being proposed. But Modernizing Medicine has a set of ICD-10-CM codes that can help emergency departments classify Pokemon injuries.

There probably will be many S02.2XXB (Fracture of Nasal Bones, Initial Encounter) codes used. Don’t be surprised if there is a history of Z63.1 (Problems in relationship with in-laws).
