Although the ICD-10 implementation date is delayed for a year, your ICD-10 training should not be postponed. The extension of the October 1, 2013 date is to allow additional time for everyone to prepare. This audio conference is a great step forward in the process.
Family Practice encompasses all aspects of coding rules, so early identification of knowledge deficits is important. Join now for this 1-hour audio conference where our expert speaker Jill M. Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC will provide you an overview of the differences between ICD-9 & ICD-10 guidelines, so you’ll know where they are compared to and where they need to be in this learning process.
You’ll also get to know the location of most recent draft of codes and current guidelines; receive documentation tips for today that will make the transition for documentation of ICD-10-CM easier tomorrow; understand case examples like if providing fracture care, what information will be needed to select the appropriate code extensions; and learn specificity needed for ICD-10-CM that is not needed today for proper code selection; and more.
Jill will provide actual office notes on codes and spend lots of time for Q&A. She’ll show you and explain the advantages of Flash cards, templates, GEM tools etc., which will work for your practice.
