Expectations for ICD coding on hospice Medicare claims have expanded dramatically in the last year. Is your hospice starting from scratch?
Understanding its key nuances has become need of the hour to excel the task at hand. This informative presentation focuses on the crucial structural challenges. For instance, what position will do the coding, and facilitate excellent results, at what exact point is it necessary in the process to gain accurate outcome, what kind of internal training is needed, and more. The presenter of this audio conference, Susan Balfour, BA, RN will explain you about the essential parameters that are required to know if the coding done by you is correct or not. Please remember, although Susan will review the history, its purpose and management of the International Classification of Diseases, the session is not intended on how to code.
Plus, in this session, the attendees will be provided with an internal process checklist which will guide you on ‘who should do what’. This will also help you outline the decision making process and guide you on how, when and by whom the decision will be made.
Here’s a look at what Susan will cover during the session:
Who should attend? CEOs, CFOs, clinical leadership, QAPI, compliance and education.
