ICD-9’s Final Bow—The Full List

On October 1, 2011, ICD-9-CM will get its last close- up. That date marks the final regular update for the veteran code set.

In 2012 ICD-9-CM will receive only limited updates to capture new technologies and diseases. Starting October 1, 2013, it will be relegated to bit parts. The healthcare industry will have a new star on that day: ICD-10-CM/PCS.

The US has been using ICD-9-CM since 1979. This month in print, the Journal commemorated the code set’s 32-year career by taking a look back at the movies popular on its 5-, 10-, 15-, 25-, and 30-year anniversaries. Here we feature the entire list of anniversaries and add each year’s Academy Awards Best Picture.

(Note: in this list our source for top-grossing movies is Variety, so several results differ from the list that appeared in print.)
