Participants will be exposed to differences between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM coding conventions while reviewing key coding concepts such as combination codes. The course begins with an overview of general coding guideline changes, including an overview of procedure coding/ ICD-10-PCS, and moves quickly into new or changing documentation requirements by body systems, highlighting when these changes impact DRG assignment. Participants will also learn strategies regarding the incorporation of documentation requirements into existing forms and/or templates to minimize potential queries for additional documentation during the transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS. At the end of this program, participants will be able to: Apply general ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS coding conventions Identify additional documentation required for accurate ICD-10-CM diagnosis code assignment Identify coding guidelines unique to ICD-10-CM and PCS Identify common situations that will require physician queries in ICD-10-CM Define how combination codes affect CC/MCC status and DRG assignment Identify ways to incorporate ICD-10-CM documentation requirements and queries into current practice Develop physician education strategies for the most problematic diagnoses in ICD-10 Need to Train a Group?
