Our 3 Favorite Free ICD-10 Apps

These four apps are extremely valuable resources to help ensure your transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 is a painless process.

Top Free ICD-10 Apps

  

One platform that has proven to be a capable tool in several healthcare areas is mobile apps. Launching a mobile app has never been easier – although this does come with a downside. Due to the relatively simple nature of app creation today, a healthy portion of the apps out there are poorly made. Luckily, we are able to read reviews and ratings in the app stores to get a good idea of an app’s proficiency. But even these don’t always tell the whole story. The best, and really the only ways to separate the truly beneficial apps from the rest of the clutter is to either download them all and experience them firsthand – so that’s exactly what we did for you.

  

Each app in this list is accompanied by the description provided in the iTunes App Store. Furthermore, we will include our own take on what stood about the app and the key strengths for each app that separates it from the others on this list. These apps all contain ICD-9 to ICD-10 conversion functionality and can be downloaded free of charge.
