Non-Standard ICD 10 Text Descriptors

Hi, We have been working with HCA facilities in Virginia to validate their syndromic surveillance messages and have recently noticed that the text descriptors sent with the ICD 10 codes do not match the standard description for that code.

For example:

HCA Standard descriptor

 - A41.9;Sepsis - A41.9;Sepsis, unspecified organism

- A41.9;Severe Sepsis

- A41.9;Septic Shock

Has anyone else run into this problem with HCA and/or Meditech?
