New Iris version available

Feb 4, 2019
We published a new version of the Iris software and the associated MUSE file: V5.6.0-Y2019S1 and specV2019SR10-Muse. It includes the unicausal and multicausal tables. Previous version 5 releases have been tested thoroughly and detected errors have been corrected.

Version 5.6.0 includes also updates and user feedbacks. Nevertheless Iris/MUSE doesn’t process all cases automatically. The following cases should be manually revised after batch processing:

  • Post-procedural disorders (E89, G97, H59, H95, I97, K91, M96, N99)
  • Pregnancy, childbirth and the puerperium (O00-O99)
  • Complications of medical and surgical care (Y40-Y84)
  • Sequelae of medical and surgical care (Y880-Y883)

Keep in mind that many coding changes are related to new coding instructions (ICD-10, Volume 2, 2016 and 2019). Iris version 5.6.0 implements these new coding rules. This version includes also updates for the unicausal and multicausal tables for 2019. Some issues found by users on the multiple cause rules have not been solved yet, because they are still under discussion.
