Next version year for DAD and NACRS products postponed

Recognizing that our clients are responding to COVID-19, CIHI is postponing the implementation of new versions of the following products until 2022–2023: Canadian Coding Standards, ICD-10-CA and CCI classifications, and case-mix products. 

CIHI will publish DAD and NACRS abstracting manuals in 2021–2022; these will incorporate addenda from the past 3 years, including jurisdictional variations and the most recent Mental Health Forms mapping information. A new version of the abstracting manuals will also be published the following fiscal year, aligned with the 2022–2023 change cycle. That is, we will publish new DAD and NACRS abstracting manuals 2 years in a row. 

The new Canadian Coding Standards and classifications (ICD-10-CA and CCI) will be published in 2022–2023 to reflect the next version updates. We will not release the Canadian Coding Standards and classifications in 2021–2022.

The table below highlights the products that will be published in 2021–2022 and in 2022–2023:
