ICD tools/resources 1 N. Close Natasha, I also mainly use icd10data. CMS tends to have good updates on the latest codes and changes. Those files can be found here: https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD10/2018-ICD-10-CM-and-GEMs.html

patient name and local jurisdiction requirements 2 D. Trepanier Virginia follows the same practice that Rosa mentioned above when collecting syndromic surveillance data re: patient name. Patient Name (PID-5) cannot be empty by HL7 standards so we instruct them to use | ~^^^^^^S| as outlined in the syndormic surveillance implementation guide as we do not want them to send the literal patient name.

Jurisdictions with Required Syndromic Reporting 6 E. Austin Yes, thank you from NJ, too. We have attempted to work on the language but I think we're going to need a broader push to engage stakeholders in the discussion. For now, we have all but one facility sending data voluntarily so we're not impatient. BUT, if we at some point are unable to continue state-level support of the connections in place, this could be a bigger issue. Thanks to all for the various resources and guidance! Teresa
