Are there any data sets of medical coding examples available online?

Eg. Doctor's notes and resulting (correct/accepted) procedure and diagnosis codes for individual encounters or samples of incorrectly coded ICD10 and CPT code sequences/bunches and their associated corrected sequences/bunches (by say medical coders or reviewers).

Or something of the form, for example, of what a medical billing coder might see on a charge review screen. Something like say a dataset where each sample contains

[<patient demographics>, <Diagnoses>, <Charges (ie. ICD10 codes and the associated diagnoses)>, etc]

I'm aware of the MIMIC-III data set, but need ICD10 (latest medical code standard, implmented in 2015-10-01) while latest version of MIMIC uses ICD9. Also aware of this very similar question, but was hoping that users may have suggestions in this case since the data I need is slightly more specific. Would like to look at differences in what doctors record as diagnoses and procedure codes and what the actual correct/acceptable code combinations should be as edited by a medical coder before the charge was sent to an insurer.

Anyway, thanks for any feedback and suggestions.

I believe this file represents the data you seek: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/reymor/meical/master/medical_icd10/data/diseases.xml

  • Not quite. Was looking more for datapoints that give a picture of a patient-doctor encounter. Something of the form, for example, of what a medical billing coder might see. Something like say a dataset where each sample is contains [<patient demographics>, <Diagnoses>, <Charges (ie. ICD10 codes and the associated diagnoses)>, etc]. This questions' been quiet for some time, but will update it to include this info. – lampShadesDrifter Aug 15 at 22:33
