Payer software vendor The TriZetto Group Inc. will use 3M Health Information Systems' ICD-10 Code Translation Tool as part of a suite of services to help insurers transition to the ICD-10 code sets and the HIPAA 5010 transaction sets.

Newport Beach, Calif.-based TriZetto initially will integrate Salt Lake City-based 3M Health's technology into a provider contract modeling service and an ICD-10 translation mapping service. TriZetto expects these Web-based services, offered remotely, to be available during the second quarter.

The new provider contract modeling service will assist insurers in mapping ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes and identifying gaps that could disrupt payments because of missing, bundled or unmapped codes. The additional ICD-10 mapping service will combine 3M Health and TriZetto translation tools to help insurers create equivalency maps between ICD-9 and ICD-10, and map them back to the core payer administrative information system.

The new services expand a suite of services that TriZetto introduced last fall. The package, called TriZetto Advantage 10 Services, includes tools to assist in strategic planning, system upgrades and coordination of updated systems.
