Although other countries use ICD-10, they still have differences from the US's version of ICD-10. The other issue is that most other countries also have a single-payer system, unlike we do. It's not the codes themselves that pose the problems (in my opinion, anyway), it's going to be the payers, and whether or not your computer system will be able to support the two diagnosis code libraries.
I think that the AAPC, CMS, AHIMA and the AMA have been good about keeping us informed of what we have to do to prepare for this conversion. I have no illusions that this is going to be easy.
Let me know if you do find someone, and if they were helpful.
