Program Description

Can you confidently say that you know all you need to know about ICD-10 and how it impacts your practice and that of your organization? If not, we are here to help. We are offering this intermediate ICD-10 coding seminar to help you understand recent updates to the ICD-10-CM code set so your agency will be ready for the coming coding year. Without a working knowledge of the guidelines and conventions of the ICD-10-CM code set, there is a risk of substantial loss of productivity and revenue loss for organizations and professionals who are not proficient.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released 2,670 changes to ICD-10-CM on Oct. 1, 2016. This was the first update since the nation transitioned to the new code set after a five-year code freeze. Specifically, there were 1,943 new, 422 revised and 305 deleted codes. Every chapter had at least some new, revised or deleted codes; and thousands of additional changes are expected October 1, 2017 as well.

Are your coders accurately coding the case mix points that less skilled coders may miss? Now is the time to ensure your coders are coding correctly! Join your fellow home health professionals in this interactive and educational coding seminar.

Audience

This coding seminar is for those who have coding experience in either ICD-9 or ICD-10 code sets and desire a refresher course on guidelines and conventions. Attendees will review the coding “rules” and learn how to apply them to commonly coded disease processes such as diabetes, cardiopulmonary diseases, wounds, neoplasms, GI/GU disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, strokes, fractures, as well as aftercare and status codes.

Learning Objectives

  • Attendees will learn to apply current ICD-10-CM coding conventions and guidelines to common home health scenarios.
  • Attendees will show proficiency in using the ICD-10-CM code set to select and sequence codes as instructed by official guidelines.
  • Attendees will understand the coder's role in the agency as it applies to collecting and reporting diagnoses in cooperation with the clinician and physician provider.
