Product Offering

What is the Clinical Practice Guidelines + Codes series?

Clinical Practice Guidelines + Codes (CPG + Codes, for short) are the most credible resources in the market, combining quick-reference versions of official clinical guidelines with ICD-10-CM and CPT® codes.

Each title in this digital series is based on a set of condition- or disease-specific guidelines that are reviewed and approved by the authoring organization prior to publication. These summarizations of the original, full-text guidelines never omit or alter important information. The addition of ICD-10-CM diagnostic codes and CPT® procedure and service codes facilitate documentation and billing.

What is a subscription?

When purchasing a CPG + Codes title, you are purchasing a single-user license to access that title, or package of titles, for a period of one year.

How are titles within the CPG + Codes series developed? Are the products credible?

These are by far the most credible guideline derivatives in existence. Each quick-reference guideline is reviewed and approved by the authoring organization prior to publishing. In many cases, the chairs and co-chairs of the original guideline serve as the expert reviewers. Rest assured that even though the guidelines are summarized from the original, full-text version, important information is never omitted or changed in any way, shape, or form. CPT® codes are provided directly by the experts at the American Medical Association. This digital series is supported by content from some of the most credible and well-respected organizations in healthcare.

How often are the titles within the CPG + Codes series updated?

Each title is on a slightly different revision and update schedule. Guidelines are typically updated or reaffirmed every 3 to 5 years. ICD-10 and CPT® codes are updated yearly and correspond to respective implementation dates.

How often are new titles added to the CPG + Codes series?

We are regularly adding new titles. Ultimately, more than 200 titles will be available in the CPG + Codes series.

Can I print a physical copy of my order?

Due to copyright restrictions, you are not able to print the CPG + Codes. We apologize for any inconvenience.
