Mastering the ICD-10 coding transition for your anesthesia practice will take an effort, however it can pay off in terms of higher revenue and greater clinical efficiency.
For example, if your provider is involved with a case because of a pacemaker complication, you’ll have to go through eight different diagnosis codes – and count on both the anesthesia and surgical records – to find the best match under ICD-10. The ICD-10 code set adds specificity based on the type of complication and the encounter type (initial, subsequent, sequela).
Expert speaker Kelly Dennis, MBA, ACS-AN, CANPC, CHCA, CPC, CPC-I will help your anesthesia practice cope with the pressure of transition, in this audio session. Plus, get tips and ICD-10 training tools along with heaps of expert insights to deal with post implementation challenges.
