OBJECTIVE: To derive and validate an International Classification of Diseases-10 (ICD-10) version of the Ontario Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) mortality prediction rules, used to adjust for case-mix differences in studies of AMI patients using administrative data. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: We linked the records of all Ontario patients admitted with AMI (2002-2004) with mortality data. The original ICD-9 codes were mapped to ICD-10-CA (Canada) codes using both a translation produced by coding experts and a manual search of codes; the final codes were determined by consensus. Comorbidity prevalence and mortality rates were calculated. Multivariable logistic regression models were used to predict 30-day and 1-year mortality and the C-statistic was used to evaluate the discrimination of the models. RESULTS: We identified 37,271 AMI patients. The most common comorbidities were heart failure and dysrhythmias; 30-day and 1-year mortality rates were 12.3% and 21.8%, respectively; and mortality rates were highest among patients with shock, cancer, and acute renal failure. The C-statistics were 0.77 and 0.80, compared with 0.78 and 0.79 in the ICD-9 version, for 30-day and 1-year mortality, respectively. CONCLUSION: An ICD-10 version of the AMI mortality prediction rules predicted 30-day and 1-year mortality as well as the original ICD-9 version.
