- The Extension document was reviewed and open issues were discussed. Several points were highlighted:
- These are low volume, high dollar value procedures which makes this profile smaller in possible market size.
- Some verbiage will need to resolved for clarity.
- Codes that are proprietary to ACC CathPCI version 5.0 may need to removed to the public facing coder's dictionary. We will leave the current references to version 4.4 in place, but note that subsequent versions may impact the vocabulary.
- Some clarification around the concept of complications occurred.
- Some review items were not discussed. Charles Thomas will address and we will have a call on Friday, 4/27.
