This session will review the changes to the Chapter Guidelines, and provide an overview of the changes in the most common codes in every Chapter of the ICD-10-CM code set. Correct coding and documentation is the key to reimbursement. Many other aspects of patient care, such as lab orders, EMR use, quality measures and clinical studies are among the many areas that will be affected.
This session will discuss the increased documentation required to support ICD-10 codes.
An explanation of the changes, as well as discussion of the additional elements of documentation, will prepare clinicians for the ICD-10 transition
Why should you attend: Abstract In less than a year, the transition from ICD-9 to ICD -10 will impact many aspects of medical practice management. The revenue cycle is only one aspect of coding that will be affected, and its importance is paramount.
Understanding the differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 is vital to physicians and administrators preparing for the impact of ICD-10, and the coming year will be focused on managing this change. Clinicians, EMR staff, coders and billers in outpatient settings should attend this session to understand the impact of ICD-10 and plan for a successful transition.
