Can you do ICD-10-PCS?

Q: Can you do ICD-10-PCS?

Yes. The axes used by PCS axis are a simplified subset of the PlatoCode binary pattern. For a computer, mapping between the two is very straight-forward... the most difficult task is to ensure that axis mapping does not generate a detailed PCS code that does not (yet) exist! This remains true even for codes needing counts or an origin axis that does not form part of the declared procedure description, but is mentioned elsewhere in the detailed operation note.
