HighPoint Solutions has teamed with Siperian to create the ICD-10 Appliance, a master data solution that helps hospitals, healthcare systems and payers with ICD-10 compliance. The solution employs master data management principles and tools to create a central business management layer with ICD-9/ICD-10 mappings, translations and business rules that can be utilized by all applications. The appliance facilitates consistency in approach and rules when major commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) applications are sourced from multiple vendors and integrated with internally developed applications. It also permits overrides or extensions based on customer, business process or function. The appliance can be updated.
