Online ICD Code Lookups

  • Curious if anyone has attempted to utilize an API to an online ICD code database with Iguana Lua in an attempt to grab an ICD code that say best matches a diagnosis in an OBX segment?

    I’m always encountering resulting systems that don’t provide ICD coding functionality to go with the diagnosis they are sending back to the EMR, and just wondering if this gap can be filled enroute, and can then just be verified and signed off on at the EMR side, saving valuable Physician time.

    Sure, it depends on what’s your OBX code looks like. You can use Iguana Translator API: to make online ICD Code lookup.


    local result = net.http.get{url="", live=true}

    Hope this could help. Otherwise, you can send us an support request:
