I have posted to a couple of listservs, but there are always good answers on this one.  I thought perhaps since most organizations on this listserv should be at some point of ICD-10 implementation that someone might be able to help.

I have been looking extensively and have not been able to find good information sources on the differences between the WHO ICD-10 code set in comparison to ICD-10-CM/PCS code sets.  Is anyone aware of articles or information sources that would be useful?

I am interested in seeing if there would be a level where one could use a base level of the US modifications to correspond to the WHO ICD-10 code set. I believe mortality reporting is occurring at some level with ICD-10 now, but I am not in the public health field or involved with CDC, so I am not sure how this is working.  Would appreciate any information on the current use of ICD-10 now if anyone has it as well.

Thanks in advance
