Product Description

Successfully Implement ICD-10 PCS By Defining Root Operations

No one can escape learning ICD-10-PCS.

If you’re a physician, then you need to understand how ICD-10-PCS requires specific documentation — documentation that differs from what was sufficient for ICD-9. If you don’t get that documentation right, then you won’t be paid what you ethically deserve.

If you’re a coder, you need to know how to translate the clinical information from the operative report into the ICD-10-PCS system. One incorrect root operation character and your entire claim will be undermined.

Each of the seven characters in an ICD-10-PCS code has a purpose. For instance, a single code can denote a body part, operative approach, device, as well as the procedure. Therefore, a major component of an ICD-10-PCS code is character 3, signifying the Root Operation.

Arm yourself with these ICD-10-PCS tips and strategies with our expert presenter, Dorothy D. Steed. Review all the characters of ICD-10-PCS, and get vital documentation tips to assist in determining the correct Root Operation selection. Remember, you must follow these medical coding rules that govern ICD-10 PCS.

Here’s just a sample of what you’ll learn:

  • Familiarize yourself with the 7 Character Structure of ICD-10-PCS.
  • Discover the required documentation to determine the correct code.
  • Get the latest on medical coding conventions in ICD-10-PCS.
  • Know how to use the index and table to finalize your code.
  • Try your hand with several ICD-10-PCS examples.
  • Here’s how to determine the correct Root Operation selection.
  • Highlight the most important medical coding rules that govern ICD-10-PCS.
  • Find out why specificity matters for ICD-10-PCS.
  • Define each character’s unique meaning.
