The main term format in the ICD-10-CM Index to Diseases and Injuries is used as a reference source that provides a comprehensive listing of conditions and diseases by their main descriptor. An example of an entry using this format can be found under “Myopathy”, which lists the various types of myopathies including polymyositis, dermatomyositis, mitochondrial myopathies, congenital myopathies, inflammatory myopathies, metabolic storage diseases with muscle involvement (MDF), channelopathies with muscle involvement (CPM), endocrine disorders with muscle involvement (EDMI) and infectious causes of myopathy.
The main term format is typically employed when there are multiple terms associated with a particular condition or disease. By using this format for an index entry like Myopathy, it allows users to quickly identify all related conditions in one single place instead having to look them up separately in other subcategories or chapters. This makes it easier for medical professionals to navigate through the ICD-10-CM codes when diagnosing or treating patients without having to search through long lists of subcategories and codes.
In addition to providing quick access to information on various conditions and diseases within the same category, the main term format also helps make coding more accurate by including disease classifications within each index entry. For example, under Myopathy there are five different classifications listed: muscular dystrophy/myotonic syndromes; genetic/metabolic; metabolic/degenerative; endocrine; and infectious etiologies. By grouping these together in one index entry rather than attempting to list them out separately elsewhere within the ICD-10 code set, it helps simplify coding accuracy while providing quicker access to information on specific classes of diseases or conditions applicable for use during patient treatment or diagnosis processes.
